I really hope the Kings watch video of the Oilers powerplay and see what they should be doing. It's not even a talent issue. It's forcing the defense to get out of position to open up shooting lanes, and just fire the puck.

You can tell Kopitar isn't fully recovered when you watch him skate. He's not as strong on the puck and he's not moving very nimbly on the ice as we're used to seeing from him. Normally he's an agile skater, but you wouldn't think he is judging from his start to the season. He's definitely not at 100%.

Kopitar has looked as terrible as anyone out there, behind the play two steps all the time. losing puck battles, giveaways, you name it.

This is a pretty spectacularly inept couple of teams so far. Hard to tell that one is a defending Stanley Cup Champion ... and the other team has about 17 1st overall picks on their team ...

Kinda surprised we didn't go behind after failing on all those PP's

As easy as it is to get emotional right now, they've just got to relax and hit the reset button. It's a 0-0 game. Go out and play.

8 shots in total with all that extended PP time including a 2 minute 5-on-3. Aye.

I wish every Kings player was from a different nation so I can say that our terrible PP is from a language barrier

Probably have too, The top six is clearly not ready to play or in shape.

The Kings are not going to win any games with the top six playing so bad.

And the PP being awful.

Kings probably have the least Euro players in the NHL.

Any chance they are still running Kompons PP because they didn't have enough time in camp to start a new set-up?

Nope, Payne has a different system. At some point you have to start blaming players.
