he came through when it counted and the Kings have a Cup for it, so best wishes to Jamie Kompon in whatever you decide to do.

Maybe the boys finally said screw Kompon's PP, let's actually get stuff done, and we got the 3 PPGs that lead to the cup.

Anywho, I say thanks for your service JK, and best to you in future endeavors.

Well, as pointed out in the CBC broadcast, the Kings changed up their offensive strategy on the 5 minute PP, so that all three "attackers" were above the circles and approaching the red line, as if to tell the Devils "come and get us."

The strategy worked (understatement of the year).

Now, was that Kompon, or was that someone else on the coaching staff? You guys that are so quick to pull the trigger on this guy, whom do you think changed up the strategy?

In any event, I find people who find joy at someone else's misfortune distasteful. However, this is a bulletin board, where anyone can say anything, and often do.

I wish him, as well as Murray, the best of luck in their future endeavors.

It appears some are unaware of the adjustments that were made when Sutter took over. He did some work with the PP unit but he also shared responsibility with John Stevens. It looked like Kompon's role was slightly diminished.

This is a case of the coach sometimes getting too much or too little credit. He was with the Kings for a very long time, his name will end up on the Stanley Cup and he will also get a ring. I think that is a damn good tenure for all the years of service he put in. He has an extensive history and background in hockey and I'm sure he'll land on his feet elsewhere.

This raises the question. Whatever happened to John Van Boxmeer? And for that matter, Van Earl Wright (or Van Earl Wrong as we liked to call him).

Why is it assumed that because I think someone SHOULD be fired means I'm finding joy in his firing (even though it wasn't a firing)? I own my own company, and occasionally have to fire people who can't/won't do a good job. Do I find joy in it? No. Am I glad when they are gone? Of course.

Look, I work pretty damn hard for my money, and a part of what precious amount of my income is disposable, I choose to dispose of on Kings games. During many of those games I was subjected to what most here will agree was a horrible PP from a team with all sorts of offensive skill.

"See ya, Kompon, don't let the door hit you on the way out" (he said, joylessly).

remind me again, what was up with van boxmeer? I seem to remember not liking him, but that's all.

sometimes i'm astounded by how good a memory people here have. some players i forget played for us, like Nagy, Burke, Bure, Stuart, and Straka. I look at those names and still can't believe they played for us. but then i remember stupid things like kuznetzov and that one between the legs play that Foxie made a big deal over

Van Boxmeer was brought in as Dave Tippett's replacement. Under Tippett, the Kings had the top ranked powerplay unit in the NHL. Tippett left, enter Van Boxmeer, the Kings plummeted to 18th in the NHL on the powerplay.

All those names took me back to the great Dmitri Yushkevich for Jaroslav Bednar and Andreas Lilja trade. And to think, the Kings burned two 2nd round picks to draft those European players. Ugh.

Okay, okay...joy might be the wrong word for you.

Callousness?

Ultimately, you were "subjected" to a Stanley Cup championship. So we had a ****** PP. What team is perfect, even a champion?

I'm not saying keep the guy. I am just saying a little less celebration might be in order here.

Honestly don't think Kompon had anything to do with the pp goals in the last round. If he adjusted the PP in last round of our entire season than that's just lazy. Kompon was atrocious at PP. Nichols and other Staff most likely made the changes.

He was also the only coach that didn't get a contract extension when DL did... He was fired.

Lilja's career suggests he was worth a 2nd round pick.

Bednar on the other hand...

The guy Wasn't in charge of anything since Sutter took over.

Maybe Coffee,

Sutter ran the PP since he got here.

I would say that is a bigger reason he didn't get a contract...... The guy was in charge of Coffee.

Would you pay someone 100k for Coffee and video sessions ?

Kompon has his name on the cup.


Best of luck in your future endeavors JK, you had an up and down career in L.A. but since you were part of our cup efforts you will always get a pass from me.

Bon Chance

What? People who have had to suffer watching Lilja would suggest he is not worth a 2nd round pick.

I'm one of those people who suffered. I watched him virtually ever Kings game he had, and several others since.

I'm not trying to say he's some amazing player, but to total nearly 600 NHL games (and possibly counting) and be part of a cup winning team isn't anything to sneer at. Go back and review how many 2nd rounders even get 600 NHL games, it's maybe 25% of them, likely less. He was worth a 2nd.

EDIT: It should also be noted that of all the players drafted after Lilja in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, only four played more games than him so far, and one was Lubomir Vishnovsky, whom LA also drafted. It's hardly a waste of a pick when you walk away with one of the best players still draft eligible.

bednasshhh lol! wow, yushkevich. I actually was really excited when we got him hahaha.

And Lilja was a staple on Detroits lineup for quite a while. Definitely impressed me how Detroit could take our garbage and turn it into a contender team.
