NJ's PK in the playoffs was dreadful. The kings came into the series under 9% and had a 30% PP versus NJ. Don't think the PP was fixed, they just ran into the worst PK.

Sutter initially wanted to replace his assistant(s) and then neither was fired.

Things just keep getting better: Kompon not returning to @LAKings next season. Maybe they'll have a working power play!

I appreciate his dedication to the team but good riddance. I'm sure he'll catch on somewhere else. Good luck to him.

Yeah, I am really disappointed in the reaction as well.

Someone just lost their job and people are celebrating. Really disappointed in you guys.

He was a glaring weak link in the organization, glad to see that he won't be coming back.

A Kings source has confirmed an initial L.A. Times report that assistant coach Jamie Kompon will not return to the staff next season, per the choice of the team. Further, John Stevens and Bill Ranford are expected to return. It’s not yet known who Darryl Sutter might choose to fill the position. Bernie Nicholls, who spent half of last season with the team and served as a “consultant,” is not believed to be interested in a full-time coaching role (or at least wasn’t, as of a couple months ago).

Interesting side note is that it would seem Kompon was working under a shorter contract than the rest of the staff. Kings management and other coaches (other than Sutter) are under contract through 2013.

Yup, I know. That's why I'm glad he's staying. He was just not good as a coach, not a drop of emotion behind the bench. Like Murray.

I'm trying to find who Darryl's assistant coaches were during his San Jose days and Calgary days. Can't find the information anywhere ugh.

Can anyone help?

Why? he was average at best. Why should he have kept his job? They just won the cup and should look to be the best, not average.

You must be either a union worker or supporter, where everyone keeps their job, no matter their contribution.

What's done is done, I was merely commenting on people celebrating someone who is being fired, which is distasteful at best.

As for your last bonehead comment, I am neither a union member nor a supporter, having been self-employed for the past several years.

You know what they say about assuming...it certainly applies to you.

This is second to winning the Stanley Cup. Greatest news possible right now. It's about time. This guy have 50000 lives and just kept surviving coach after coach... Thank the hockey gods we can finally get rid of this guy!

I too have mixed emotions.

If you guys are going to look at the body of work over the last several years Kompon was no bigger weak spot for the kings than Penner and Stoll.

To me the weak pk argument doesn't hold up. There were many weak pking teams this season that we couldn't get goals scored on them.

I'm not advocating or ridiculing this move but like it or not our power play was the main reason we killed the devils momentum and won game 6.

I'm sure this will get deleted but that is just asinine.

Pfft. Don't count me as petty enough to delete that comment I use asinine a lot myself. One of my favorite words to rebuttal with.

But I am an avid patron of the anti-Kompon camp. I've dislike him for years. This news is fantastic. Kompon has been a weed that has outlasted everyone on the staff. Enduring his powerplay for 6 years was pure torture. I am just pleased that we finally have a chance to get a new person in that can revitalize the offense.

Hasn't Rich Preston been an Assistant Coach with him in Chicago, San Jose and Calgary?
