Have you guys thought about the ice being a problem? Seems like an excuse but we play 41 games each year on the ********* ice in the league and always have solid defense at home, other teams have a hard time scoring in staples center usually. We play better on the road usually. The crappy ice at staples center doesn't help our offense, I'll say that much.
The Lakers and Clippers did not play for the first almost the first 3 months this year, so not sure if your theory holds water..
I just checked to see how you guys are doing (have Quick, Lokti and Voynov in my lifer pool) and I do think it is now official: The L.A. Kings are a soccer team. You'd think the law of flukes (whatever that is) would dictate you'd occasionally score two or more goals a game. Especially when you're outshooting them so badly. Unbelievable.
DS has got to see that our system is what is costing us games. He has to see how completely out of balance we are at both ends of the ice and even in the N zone most of the time. Stevens and Kompn should have been canned when DS came aboard.
