All that from Backes? Wow. JJ is really underrated- people look at his +/- history end up labeling him overrated.

people usually dont just waive 4.5 million dollar left wings...i think that means for 100% sure some other teams gonna pick him up and the kings are still gonna have to pay????

Penner played just fine last night. I don't get the hate. He moved his feet more last night than I can remember in any other game he has ever played for the Kings. Just because he didn't score a goal doesn't mean he sucked.

I'm trying to watch the game on Gamecenter right now and every single game works perfectly fine, except this one. It plays for 10 seconds and then just freezes and does nothing.

I just watched this game on gamecenter. Worked fine. Other than at times in the third it got a bit choppy. Log off and back on and try again.

Same ****. Even tried it on my PS3 and it's the same. Intermissions when it says "Please tune to the away feed during the intermission break" works, but not the actual game, but switching to the Blues feed doesn't work.

Well, the Blues feed is actually working now, that'll do.

This is more a general commet, but surely you don't expect him to say: "Johnson? I think he is very overrated, he makes stupid plays and frankly, I think he should be a winger, since he can't play defense at all. Also his mom is ugly and I heard his father takes drugs."

When you ask any hockey player about some other player, it's all canned answers, they say whatever is expected. Unfortunately or fortunately - I will let that everyone to decide for themselves.

This is the type of post that blows me away. How does any of that sound canned? The question was about the Kings young defenseman and Backes sidestepped Doughty and praised Jack for a while. He also talked about how Jack is so strong that he is "like a panzer tank".

Why can't some of you just stop looking for things to be negative on Jack.

He didnt have to go out of his way to say the things he did. He could have said ...yeah, he is tough to play against and thats it. he went out if his way to really comment on jj. I think that speaks volumes and it also proves what Mitchell said about him too.

Speaking of JJ, did anyone see the red car he rolled up near the black carpet? Was that a Ferrari?

"Some of you" being me? You are the biggest JJ fan on this planet so I can't blame you if you feel you are alone against everyone else. But you are not. Still if you just opened a thread and said all that as your own opinion, it would be much better, I would even agree on some of the points.

That's true, he could have said "less" however it still doesn't mean much. You see, one of the "rules" about evaluating players is also, that you can make the player to be as strong as someone who is not in the squad for the game. Sidestepping Doughty would be to say "JJ is better than Doughty." But if you say "JJ is as strong as Doughty" that is not breaking the NHL praising opposition etiquette. The same can be seen when players are asked how do they see Penguins without Crosby and Malkin. The canned answers are what? That the team is basically just as strong, that they have enough talent left, that they will have to play just as hard if they want to win etc. So when you play against Kings minus Doughty, the NHL praising players etiquette suggests that you must praise the rest of the defense.

I am not saying that whatever Backes said is BS. I am just saying that to me players' comments don't hold much value or credibility. How often do you see someone talking badly about other players on TV? You are not going to tell me, that all players think all the best about everyone else in the league?

Edit: Just look at poor Bradley and his valid comments on Semin. He was pretty much forced to apologize.

Stoll isn't going anywhere this season. The Kings are not going to supply a playoff contender and no non-playoff team will take a player with expiring contract

Regardless, Stoll is key face off guy, he plays PK and point on PP. A playoff bound team won't be trading such assets for picks/prospects just bc they don't won't to loose him for nothing

No, I am not Jacks biggest fan. I'm just as much a fan of Drew Doughty but I couldn't post about him because Backes didn't say anything about him. I've said it a dozen times. I am just a fan of young dmen and I don't have to defend Drew as much.

There are a few irrational JJ haters here that refuse to see the positvie in anything. Same can be said about Brown and Quick haters. Your last two posts are classic cases of this. There is no rationale way to discredit those words and the way he said it. I'm sorry man. Backes went out of his way and gushed over Jack.

Your last two posts make me thing that it could be just you misunderstanding certain Jack Johnson related posts. If it was someone else writing the same about Williams I would have probably written the same post but you wouldn't feel the need to accuse me of anything irrational then. It will be better if you admit your JJ love to yourself. Look around, people seems to be very open about their fictional bromances with Kopitar, Doughty, Williams, Quick,... Nothing to be ashamed of, Johnson is a handsome young man AND he has a nice car.

You are taking these things way too seriously I think.
