That's not going to happen, but the reasons why opposing fans would hate our team are obvious.

For all intents and purposes we = the fanbase

A.) We talked a huge game about how good this team is

B.) The team is really boring at times

C.) We pine over every free agent worth a crap, which obviously pisses people off, and sometimes even act like we're entitled to them

D.) When we don't get our way, the fanbase complains about it quite vociferously

I get what your saying, but the biggest hater over there is mostly mad because the Kings traded for his favorite players and the Kings have been hyped on HF while his team has not been.

A.) Most fanbases do this and it wasn't just us who thought this team was going to be good.

B.) No argument there, but it's hardly worth the diatribes over on the main board

C.) The Rangers pine over every free agent imaginable and sign them to obscene contracts, why are we getting hate? Go look at any Parise thread on the main boards and your bound to come across many Ranger posters saying that he will be a Ranger, just like they did with Richards last year. I've yet to see one King fan say that they honestly think Parise is coming here. This all boils down to Kovalchuck, as hardly anyone here thought we were getting Brad Richards and while I wanted Gaborik, fans here were evenly split at best.

D.) How is this any different then any other fanbase?

Game 2 of the "playoffs" for the Kings. Lost game 1 and still need to win 4 to make the actual playoffs.

Big 2 points available tonight. Lose and the Kings are a coin flip to make it, win and they are favorites. Not a big game at all.

For sure--I was being facetious. I can understand where a lot of it comes from. I just really want a win to quiet the vocal masses.

I've always found the hate on the main boards quite amusing. The Kings are not a powerhouse and they aren't a threatening team, yet there is a lot of hate for them. I also don't think Kings fans are that annoying on there. We don't create threads every time something happens in a game that we don't like, or one of the Kings achieves some level of success. Anyway, I've found it's best not to even engage the haters. Instead just laugh at them and move on.

The fatc people are hating on the kings means we are a better team than I personally give us credit for.

If ever a team needed a lucky-bounce goal in the first three minutes of the game, it's the Kings, and tonight.

I don't think so.

No we didn't. TSN, Hockey News, and the whole hockey world said that this was our year to make a push. It's not like it was just Kings fans or even majority Kings fans.

We don't play the trap. We may have been horrifically bad at offense this year but that's not all that uncommon in hockey....

We say we aren't going to get them. That's the basic Kings post. Boy that UFA looks great, guess he's going to the Rangers. We don't pine. Hell I can't remember ever seeing a Kings fan post even kinda of claiming we're going to get a UFA, realistically.

Even if we did it's not even in the same league as Leafs, Habs, Rangers, every single other Canadian team and most people on the East Coast.

Well it would be nice if cnshocky didn't constantly complain on the main boards. But once again we complain that we're playing like ****. Not often about somethign else. The anti-King "King Fan" is more common then anything else.

I agree with you.

We haven't beat ANYONE in the playoffs yet. Playoffs create bad blood, and the Kings really have no recent PO bad blood (how can you with 12 games over 10 years?!)

the nucks and sharks? already hated them, no more or less now, but really the last 2 years you just knew the roof would cave in, it was only a matter of time.

Now when (IF!!) the Kings are ever the favorite in a series and they lose, that will create some anger and bad blood. (wow, home ice advantage is really only 4 wins away - they can do it!!)

There's really no reason for any fan base to hate the Kings - and if some do, they're morons.

Believe me, I WANT other fans to (eventually) hate the Kings, but that's a long ways off I'm afraid to say...

I've found quite a few of our games boring. Especially under Terry Murray. Even though it's not all that uncommon in hockey, it's boring to watch. I really don't understand where you're going with this..

I'm not getting my hopes up for an exciting game. I have a feeling this is going to be a lot like what we saw in Vancouver. Very tight.

As much as I've been bemoaning DD's performance the last couple of games, he DID just do a nice heads-up pickup of the puck in the Calgary zone to create another scoring chance. Well done, DD -- just keep doing SMART things.
