Jones has an hamstring injury, missed the Monarchs last game. My guess is that's the reason Berube is being called up.

Interesting. Saw nothing of it from them on twitter or their site. Thanks for clarifying.

Also, Puck U, the moment our first game is announced, I expect a GDT. I miss those.

Mark Morris mentioned it the pre-game interview before saturday's game. Not sure when it happened though. Jones played the whole game the night before, in fact he played his best game of the year! And Morris said he planned on starting Jones that night.

It's possible it could have to do with Quick not being ready to go, but my guess it's Jones being hurt.

As much as it would suck, it would give the Kings a chance to test the possible future top pairing of the team with Doughty-Martinez together for a couple of games

Well ... they are A LOT of work ... but I guess I was pretty successful with them last season ...


... so if y'all really want me to do them again I maybe could ?

I could use some help from my usual suspects from during the playoffs though if they'd like to help make up some opening night Championship Banner raising img's that I could incorporate into the GDT, you know who you are.

Other than Pittsburgh, I don't think any team can match what Kopi and Richards bring on both sides of the puck at center


If it is a 50 game season, 25 you wouild think are home games. Is that possilbe at the STaples? Isn't there a Grammy issue in Feb? Normally the 40 games home are divided among 7 mos or so. How will they fit them all in?
Prepare for a ton of afternoon games.

That's a lot of "if's" though . That assumes NBCSN would do a Saturday day game (doubleheader?) and that they'd still be interested in televising it if it was vs. Vancouver instead of another US team.
I bet they move the Clippers game earlier and give the Kings the evening game time on the 19th.

Sorry if I missed it in this thread (I only skimmed the 6 pages so far) but has it said how the AHL/CHL will handle NHL training camps, as I'm sure some players, especially those in the AHL, will be recalled for the training camp. It might not affect us as much as we have a pretty set roster, but even we will likely give looks to several players such as Toffoli, Pearson, Loki, Hickey, Muzzin, Campbell, etc.

I assume things will continue as status quo?

I hope so. It would be pretty lame for the Stanley Cup Champion to open with a day game.

Hopefully the Clips do the classy thing and agree to the switch.

Given that training camp will be 8 days long at most I doubt we'll see too many players called up. We will probably see Loki, maybe one or two of the defensemen but thats it.

Glad they found a resolution without scrapping the season. I had convinced myself there wasn't even a chance so it was actually a big surprise to me on Sunday morning. I still will be taking a break from spending money on the NHL this season. Hopefully I can finnegal some free tickets at work or I'll just be watching from home.

It'll be intersting that's for sure... Looking at the AHL schedule for the proposed start date of camp and there are 14 games 1/11 and 14 games 1/12... Chances are we might see only about 5-10 (less in most team's cases) guys from a lot of AHL rosters get called up....

I'm bittersweet about them coming to an agreement. I had come to accept there not being a season, and wanted the owners/players to suffer through it. I am quickly getting over it and looking forward to watching some hockey again. Cannot wait to see that banner being raised.

Well they are suffering through a weeks worth of ratifications so you got that going on and anything can happen. At the very least it means that the two sides will struggle through the next several days.

Banner raising is 2nd biggest moment in Kings history and worth whatever else has to happen.

Maybe some don't have anything to do on a Saturday night? Personally, I just don't like it.

I'm not a fan either...nothing goes better with KINGS hockey than some ice cold brews...and when you start at 1pm, it makes for a long day!

Normally I wouldn't complain, but seeing as it is when we are (presumably) going to be raising the Stanley Cup banner, a night game for that would have been better I think.

Something I was just thinking about regarding the effects of the lockout, starting on 1/19, every team will play 90+ regular season games over the next calender year.

The Kings, for example, played 47 games before 1/19 in the 11-12 season.

I wouldn't be so sure. The Clippers are a hot ticket right now and basketball takes precedence over hockey.

Isn't it better for hockey to be played before a basketball game? Isn't the ice much worse if basketball is played first?

I fly to Vegas on the 20th, so I hope the first home game is on the 19th so that I can watch it at home.

Yes, plus they get 8-10 hours of prep time instead of 2.

The Lakers maybe, but the Clippers are playing the Wizards (you probably aren't a basketball fan so i'll just say it, they're awful) that day. Now if it were a nationally televised game against the Knicks, Heat, OKC etc., you might be right.
