Perhaps the new GM wouldn't be so dumb as to completely ignore skilled forwards in the draft

This season is not lost yet...BUT it doesn't look like this team can even win a game, let alone build up a win streak. Heads will roll to be sure.

Avs fan dropping in... must be frustrating not to be finishing, but you did create alot of chances tonight. Opposing team's goalie seems to be robbing you guys every night, but maybe it's also a bit of not making life hard enough for the goalies.

I was really surprised that Quick started. Depsite your struggles, I'd imagine starting Bernier over Quick might have altered this game on its own.

Gotta give it to the Avs. They played great but there is no excuse for the Kings' porous defense in the 1st.

Hey, you want to coach a hockey team, we need someone with good common sense like you have

Right, because Kopitar, Richards, Brown, Penner, Williams, Stoll, Doughty, Johnson have ZERO skill. ZERO. Got it.

Well to be fair to the other poster, only one of the above was drafted by our Boy Genius and that one was a defenseman.

And he drafted how many of those?



Sutter really Terry Murray'd the Kings from the start. Team scores four goals the night before? Switch up the lines! Quick has a shaky start and doesn't look his best the night before? Throw back in only to have him look like even more ****!

Then there's the fact that the team just didn't even show up. Colorado completely outworked the Kings from the first minute to the last minute. That was a dominating effort. Apparently the Kings don't quite grasp the importance of these games.

i don't mean to rip the kings, or their fanbase, but why are so many people attacking dean lombardi, or saying fire dean lombardi,

on paper i think the kings have one of the best teams in the western conference, , and hiring daryl sutter who plays such a defensive style, just doesn't work in the new nhl imo, i think you guys have the firepower to put up more goals than you have lately.

i think with a proper coach, who plays a good 2 way game, you guys would have a great team.

I don't know why Lombardi likes/admires Darryl Sutter so much and brought him in as his "go to guy" with his own job virtually on the line.

He seems like the exact opposite of Lombardi, who fancies himself as an eloquent corporate guy with a business background and a law degree.

Ok, the guy will crack the whip, but just listen to the guy talk in an interview. He's barely audible half the time, he's incoherent, he can't put together a full collection of thoughts or even form sentences. He's a guy who lives on a farm/ranch and raises his own cattle in the middle of nowhere.

How can he possibly be communicating effectively with the players? How can he be teaching them anything? How is there any hope for offensive creativity or improvement on the power play?

Sutter seems like one of these "let's play chip and charge/dump and chase and just out work other teams and grind them down." I don't feel like he brings enough hockey intellect or really any intellect in general at all. He just seems like a guy that would get taken to the woodshed in the X's and O's department by a lot of the other coaches in the league.

Who hires the coach?

You really need to watch this team to see how deficient the talent level really is. "On paper" means nothing. This team is awful and has ZERO leadership on the ice.

And that is the worst part of it all.

Dean's drafting strategy has left the Kings without any sure thing scoring prospects to go along the horrible lack of skill on the NHL roster. The damage he did to this team is incredible. I have no idea how you end up with so little legit forward talent both at the NHL and developmental levels. It's going to take going talented forward with first round picks probably the next 3-4 years to build this system back to a respectable level after 6 years of ignoring talented forwards under Dean. Which is exactly what SJ did after Dean was fired up there.

Maybe Dean can take over the Ducks...drive all three California teams into the ground.
