Westgarth should be able to neutralize Konopka and Neil.

Only because if they give up a single goal it usually means the game is going to OT/shootout.

If neutralize means "get his ass kicked by" then I totally agree.

You don't enjoy a good hockey fight? Someone's got to lose and Westy's won both his fights this year.

I like hockey fights but I like it when the Kings win more. Westgarth may have "won" his fights this but I've never seen him kick anyone's ass or come close to it. I've seen him get his ass kicked though.

Most of Westgarth's fights feel scripted and those are not as fun to watch. If there is going to be a fight, I prefer to see one with real emotion.

Then there was this comment from him:

I look at it as tonight is Game 50, not that there’s a break. Tomorrow will be a harder day for the players than today is.
Does that mean he's going to skate the hell out of 'em tomorrow in practice?

Kings better win otherwise it'll be a long eight game break. Our post game thread will sprawl out to 30 pages with bickering about DL's draft picks, missed-picks, to failed trades .

Kopitar, at this very moment, is on pace for the exact same stats (excluding +/-) that he achieved last season playing only 75 games. The onus is on him and Doughty to step up their games and lead this team forward. Regardless of system or winger performances, they need to take over this team offensively or else we flounder. Those shots need to be on net and looking for scoring areas.

FYI guys, Spezza was just hit with a puck in warm up (no helmet), his head is bleeding, we don't know if he will play or not...

I'm excited for this because for some reason the Kings and Senators always have a brawl.

Every single post you make is so incredibly negative. Why do you even bother watching this team?

Geez, that is going to throw another log onto the mandatory helmet debate... Hope he is alright.

Yeah, I disagree with the "regardless" part.

Kopitar's "pace" this season is 14.6% of team goals. Last season he had 12% of the all goals (without playing all games). So that is important when talking about any player's numbers.

Superstars are expected to be superstars. Just as coaches and managers are always responsible for team statistics even if their advice and actions are sound or the team did nothing wrong and were given unlucky bounces. These players are expected to increase the level of play of everyone and carry the team on their backs whether they are capable or not.
