You know he's my boy. The three games so far have only made me love him more !

When Sutter was first hired, I recall a lot of people predicting he would be able to bring out the best in Brown. Watching these guys grow up in front of our eyes is hard to describe.

For the record, players don't vote for the community service award. Might want to get your facts straight.

I remember when Brown came into the league as a shy teenager. It's been great watching him grow over the years as both a player and person. His jersey will hang in the rafters of Staples Center one day.

The criticisms of him have always struck me as naive, ignorant, and unappreciative.

Still one of my favorite threads to look back on.

Can we now retire the mid-season "Brown shouldn't be captain" threads forever?

Oh come on Sydor ... you know it will be back, and just like 25% of people were WRONG about Brownie ... 25% of the people believe whatever the republican'ts tell them ... 25% of the people believe the Catholic church can do no wrong no matter how many young boys get molested ... 25% of the people don't believe in Climate Change ... 25% of the people don't believe in Evolution ... 25% of the people WILL ALWAYS BE IDIOTS

But at least 75% of the people here KNEW better ... and are glad to be proven RIGHT yet again. CAPTAIN O' MY CAPTAIN !

Different people have different views and their opinions are based on those views. If someone dislikes X, he will always be more critical of X than a fan of X would be.

I just peeked at one of the other Kings forums and ... well, that's quite shocking. Some people are claiming that Kopitar has only been average in these playoffs, a "passenger" with no desire to win. I have no doubt that those people believe the things they say, so that's a great example of how differently we perceive things.

I don't have enough time for the internet warfare which means that ignoring those that seem to be completely irrational is the only option.

Kings fans are very critical of their team. I think it is ingrained as part of the struggle

The season is still a failure, Lombardi should still be fired and Brown is not captain material

Well, if season was already a failure 3 months ago, it certainly can't be any different now. Remember guys : IT'S OVER!!

At the time...I thought that the captaincy was too big of a burden to be placed on him... Around the tade deadline was when I thought that I was going to have to eat those words... Not only did I have to eat them...I think I had room for dessert...
