I pray Kitsyn, Weal, Toffoli, Vey can infuse a little skill when they get here and establish themselves.
The 18 points thing with Cliche just left me gobsmacked to look at it to be honest.

I sure as hell hope they are, because given the current track this team is on we need two of those guys to become 20 goal scorers in the future. If not, then this project is doomed. This team is crying out for guys from Manchester to be given a shot in a rotation but given their numbers down there, I find it highly unlikely they could hit the NHL and do something.

The Lewis and Richardson in the top six thing makes me sick.

The fact that a bunch of NHL players can't figure out that being stationary on a power play leads to absolutely nothing is ****ing frustrating. They need to get movement out there. Passing around the perimeter makes it so easy on the penalty killers. I played club ****ing hockey and I know that. It's embarrassing.

The Kings team shooting percentage is an abysmal 6.9%, the lowest in the league. The only team under 7%.

That means opposing goalies are AVERAGING a .931 SV% against us.

Meh. I wouldn't defend Lewis or Richardson, as their hands of stone certainly isn't helping their respective lines, but at the same time, our offensive woes have persisted long before their promotions to the top 6. They did enhance our speed and forechecking on those lines though.

Honestly I know a ton of people questioned Scott Parse being here and getting his shot.


But looking at Manchester and how they have developed the last few seasons...it isn't really surprising at all.

He was literally the only player on that lineup with skill.

Ever wonder what it's like to see a PP with unpredictable movement?

This is all well and good, but the Kings need to dominate this upcoming home stand.

Kings are only 10-9-1 at home. Not acceptable for a playoff team.

Kompon needs to go. Now. Gives the new coach some home practices to get a new PP system.

The Wings are better coached, Have Much better players than the Kings. No one on this roster even comes close to the Puck handling skills of Pavel.

Not even Kopitar (my opinion).

most painful on the 5 on 3 is how far back JJ and Doughty were. Why the **** are they past the top of the circles?

Also loved it when the camera changed to behind Mason and you saw JJ with the puck on his stick in the slot, skating towards goal, noone infront of him, Brown right infront of Mason who was deep in his net, and JJ passes it.....

I would trade being awful for a couple years if the Kings could win a Cup like the Ducks did.

Even though most people don't even remember it.

You should probably stop bringing up Johnson. It's making me angry to think about how disgustingly awful he was tonight.

Lucic and Marchand.

That makes me cry a little inside.

We are literally banking on Tyler Toffoli to be the future of our franchise at forward. There's *nothing* else even remotely as promising in the pipeline.

Dean's got to make a trade for help at wing... And keep trading until the roster has two or 3 guys that can finish.

And I'm guessing he'll go the way of Azevedo, Kozun and Vey once he hits Manchester.

Not that I've given up on them, it's just that their point totals don't exactly match expectations after lighting it up in the CHL.

At least there is some scoring in the Alamo bowl. 49-39. And it's not even the 4th quarter.

Kings need an exorcism.
