Talking about the evolution of hockey, Gretzky's initial impact. Talking about how excited fans are, about all the fans showing up to greet the fans (4,000 fans) at 12:30 AM. Said some of the players have never experienced that anywhere, let alone in LA.
Says he thinks the Kings are getting lots of love despite the fact that LA is pretty divided sports wise (or was) at the moment with the Clippers/Lakers/Dodgers.
Says the best aspect of the Kings is their ability to stay down to earth and focused, to just look at the next game.
Great little piece. Bob mentioned how crazy it was at Staples last weekend with all three teams hosting playoff games.
Said the Kings best quality is that they are always focused on the next game and only the next game and he attributes that to Sutter.
Bucci asked if Bob felt that the Kings were getting the credit they deserved in the LA media and Bob gracious as ever said yes. Not sure I wouldn't have blasted the local news for screwing up the graphics all the time, but that's why Bob is there and I am not.
Told Bucci that it was great seeing those highlights one more time.
