He doesn't

Preferably Dean will only have to give him at most 3 million.

Voynov was a boss on both ends. Using his stick defensively very well. Positionally excellent tonight and WHAT a great skater.

That's exactly what I saw out of Penner. He's not coming out of the lineup if he keeps that up.

Penner was average tonight IMO. He passed up a very good scoring chance and attempted to make a cross ice path that Gretzky would be hard pressed to complete lol! Also on two seperated occasions did not play the body but instead elected to try and fish out the puck from the opposition. It's hard to watch these types of things when guys like Clifford and Nolan are finishing checks and playing damn good hockey. As for Penners assist on the Stoll goal it was an okay play that was started with Voynov jumping in and making his second great pass of the game!

Voynov IMO has picked up a few of Mitchell's tricks on D. The Kings may be a known entity around the league because of winning the Cup but VV is still going to surprise opponents by how sneaky good he's become.

Pain in the ass trying to watch games traveling abroad. Missed Carter's first goal and Stool's goal because of wifi issues. Thankfully GameCenter makes it easy to find the goal highlights.

Liking Carter more and more with each game, he is the Kings most dangerous goal-scorer since Ziggy. Get this guy a playmaker on his line and he could be 45 goal guy since Kopi is still going to get most of the attention from checkers.

Didn't get to see too much of the game since I was at work. I caught part of the second and we looked a little more like our old selves. Good to see we got the win. I hope the way we've played the last two games are a sign of where were headed.

LOL oh Craig Button. Chances that the Kings make the playoffs: "Very slim." He never passes up an opportunity to hate on the Kings.

Kings are 3 points out of 8th with a game in hand = very slim chance of making the playoffs.

Not to mention the fact that they're rounding into the form we saw last spring.

Craig Button. Real Man of Genius.

He got another pass later on in the third where he had a decent lead, but the defender got back and stopped him from even getting a scoring chance.

Most of where I feel he played poorly was on decision making and confidence, not necessarily with effort, which is why I'm not opposed to having him continue to play. He can still do a lot more; I just think that we're used to seeing him play worse that the bar's been lowered a bit.

Hopefully that makes more sense, whether or not you agree Maybe there are things I missed, as well.

I wish. The main board is too obsessed with how bad we are. I counted 8 Kings threads, none of which were started by anyone here...

Great, dominating game. Can't ask for much better than that (the "much" being a S/O)!

Keep this level of play up and all is well. It's especially impressive with all the inexperience and youth on D. As long as Ellerby doesn't play beyond his means, he looks good out there with DOughty!

The thing about getting Penner in there is that the Kings' size, up and down the 4 forward lines is a problem for opponents, just by itself.

The Kings have an ability to grind down and exhaust teams with size, just because of the various big boys in the Kings lineup who can actually skate.

Greene's loss on the back end cut into that advantage, which made the Ellerby pickup a smart, smart move and a very timely move to get back some of the Kings' size factor.

Yeah I get where you're coming from. I probably am handicapping my expectations for him right now. I agree that it's not an effort problem with him. I think it's all mental, and he looked much better in that regard today in my opinion.

I would be more worried if he said that they will make the playoffs.

The refs were horrible in this game. Backes boards Brown and they send Polak to the box instead? They missed the boarding call on Lewis, then Sobotka instigates a fight with Lewis -- and THEN Lewis ends up with the extra penalty which led to the Blues' lone goal. Unexcusable.

With that said, I love beating the Blues. They are the most overrated team in the league. Andy McDonald is a ghost vs LA.

Bernier has earned at least another game in net.

I thought Penner played well, Stoll too. 2 guys we need to pick it up and earn their contracts.
