Losing Roenick and Armstrong.

Is it realy any big loss even if both are out for the season? I was tired as hell of Army on the powerplay, and Roenick has done very little for this team. Maybe get some more energy on the team with some callups. I hope Army isnt out for the season, but realy I dont think it would hurt.

losing Roenick might be the best thing that has happened to this team all year

If there are two guys that were in the Kings lineup tonight that they can "afford" to lose, it's Roenick and Armstrong...

Armstrong actually I feel bad about losing, JR- I could care less at this point....if he is out for the rest of the season, does insurance kick off? That would be nice to save some on this liability.

If Demitra comes back by next weekend after the Canada road trip, we'll be good.

Bring up Tuk!

Despite what many would like to believe, they're a lot better than nothing and also better than the minor-leaguers (ex. Giuliano, Kanko) that would replace them. They're not critical losses, but they're losses, nonetheless. If anything, the team needs them back before anyone else is injured.

no injurt is ever good for a team...JR and Armstrong are both useful veterans...and i'm sure no one in the organization is not at least a bit discouraged by the injuries

I thought JR was having a decent game before his injury. Maybe having an ex player as coach and a new style of play will help his game. Let's hope neither are injured for long.

JR sucked and was relegated to 4th line duty - Cowan or Giuliano will be just fine.

Army is very overrated and sucks (3 goals in 31 games), but we will need him down the stretch.

Personally, I'd put Cammy at Center when Demitra comes back.

When Roenick went down after taking the shot off his ankle one of the guys sitting next to me yelled out

"Who shot JR?"

Damn that was funny!!!

These are 2 injuries I could definitely live with, and they didn't seem to hurt us for the rest of the game. While I only recognize some of JR's defenisve play, neither of them are lighting up the scoreboard anyway. For the record, I almost puked when I saw a line of Armstrong, JR, and Luc last night on the powerplay.

We can't.

He isn't part of the Kings organization.


So we lost both halfs of our 2nd line center...

I know that. I'm saying too bad DT didn't get him before the deadline.

It's not a big loss if you look at the JR during the AM reign, but I'll now only have to wonder what may have happened with a new coach and a new system, if JR might have stepped it up.

That's laughable. It's fashionable to blame everything on Murray, but get serious. JR has been a ******* joke from day one. No one is to blame but his fat, drinking, gambling a$$. End of story.

The loss of Armstrong worries me.

The loss of JR does not.

Can somebody explain to me why they don't like Army?

You mean besides his hands of stone and inability to stay onside?

Armstrong is great down low. Throws his body around. Works hard.

The only problem I have with him is he plays too much along the wall on the PP. Thats why people want him off the PP so much. If he got the puck, turned around, and looked to make a play.. He'd be a good PP player.

Sounds like an ideal player for AM. But when you get as much PP time as he has expect points, not just time spent possesing the puck. He has more PP time on the season than Parrish does, yet he has half the number of points. Now, perhaps he was just being a good AM drone and perhaps we'll see a different Armstrong when he gets back on the ice. I somehow doubt it though.

So.. now players that throw their body around, work hard, and are good down low are just "AM" drones and aren't worth much.

Armstrong does great with Cammeleri, and Parrish.

For the most part, Armstrong has been centering a line with Cammy and Brown since the Olympic break. During that time he has 0 goals and 7 assist while averaging almost 18 minutes a game and around 5 minutes of PP time per game.

Considering the quality icetime he gets, I would say he's ineffective. Possesing the puck down low is great, especially if it leads to a good scoring chance. In the case of Army, it usually doesn't.

He's a safe, puck possession player and that's why AM loved him.

No where in my post did I blame Murray for Roenick's piss-poor performance. I only said we'll never know if things had might have been different under a new system, you know, a fresh start for his fat, drinking, gambling a$$.
