The Kings were oh so bad. Just look at their lineup:



Potvin (pulled after 1st period)

This was the early stages of the dark days for the Kings from 2003-2008.
Aside from Corvo I still dig that D.

You wouldn't be saying that if you were watching this. The Kings are a train wreck, especially in their own end. Zizka and Yushkevich were bad. Miller was rock solid though. He hammered a few Ducks along the boards.

Having just watched the first period, it was completely one sided and dominated by the Ducks. The Kings could hardly connect consecutive passes and simply had no chemistry going. I guess that's bound to happen with a patchwork lineup with so many players nursing injuries (Deadmarsh, Belanger, Schneider, Visnovsky).

At the very least, this dismal team netted the Kings the draft pick that turned into Dustin Brown. Unfortunately they blew their two other first round selections as well as their 2nd round pick in 2003.

The line ups not nearly as bad if you factor in the injured guys. The real problem with the dark ages is the injuries to Deader and Allison combined with some really bad drafting. The trades for the most part weren't to bad under Taylor in general and he did great at trading vets (like Schnieder) for good assets (like Avery and a 1st). He just didn't maximize those assets values at all.

Erik Crapmussen ... there is a blast from the past. Horrible trade by Taylor giving up a quality fourth line player in Mair for this scrub.

I do remember him playing with Ziggy and Allison, and he still couldn't score to save his life.
