Stoll seems like he is friends with a lot of guys. This is him and Hartnell but that tweet is from Zac Rinaldo?

Also, last year before the season started Shane O'Brien stayed with Richardson and Stoll and helped throw out the pitch at the Dodger game. I think he is really good friends with Richardson. He is also part of the Upshall and Lupol crew...

Lupol was throwing maybe props to the Kings on twitter through out the playoffs to...

I think Hartnell was tagging Rinaldo at the end in the tweet so he would see it. My guess to make him jealous he's going to the premiere, or something of that nature.

The tweet was from Hartnell. Stoll and Hartnell were in the same draft year out of the same league. Probably are good friends.

For some reason, I thought Hartnell was like 35 or something.

No matter how bad a year Stoll has it's hard to hate on the dude, seems like such a good guy. Lombardi said he always has a team mate with him wherever he goes. He also seems like a good ambassador for the Kings, traveling to Kansas City a few seasons ago and showing up at the Richards press conference last summer.

That would be impressive, considering he was drafted in 2000, LOL. He's 30.

I disagree.

We are the first team since the lockout to bring back its entire roster after winning the cup. We have added one of the top 15 LW's in the game (I know but if he is healthy and gets his game back SG is a special player) on top of it.

Our D depth is so good that it is ridiculous.

We have the best goalie on the earth last season coming back and saying that he is more determined to prove himself this coming year then when he broke into the NHL.

Our forward depth is amazing and we have the deepest center depth in the entire NHL by far.


Finally, we have a brand new Power Play Coach who will have us improve from worst in the NHL. Even if he only takes us up a handful of notches we will be significantly better.

I see us finishing the season with 98 points which should be good enough for 5th or 6th place and then once we get into the playoffs I believe we can do some "serious damage" again.

Before last season I said it was our year. I said the same thing the season before and had Kopitar not broken his foot we might have just made it to the next round and from there who knows.

I just believe that we look at least as good as we did last season going into the playoffs and if we remain healthy we should be just as good if not significantly better next year.


I mean I am not saying you are wrong, just that while I may be wildly optimistic I do have at the very least some reason to be that way.

I had that impression to, but I think its because he's a former teammate of and plays a similar style to Mike Knuble. Always used to get them confused.

Maybe the hobo look makes him appear older.


Hartnell just tweeted that him and Stoll are hitting the Playboy Mansion tonight, so looks like he's already fitting the LA lifestyle. Guess we'll see if he really likes LA next summer. I'm sure if there was an opening on the roster, the Kings would love to add him to the roster.

Take this with a very very small grain of salt, but a couple years ago at HockeyFest when I asked Dean about Hartnell (after the actual conference), he said that he's a guy that he likes but isn't the type of player he's looking for; he wanted more skill.

That's probably around the time they were looking were looking at a skill player like Kovalchuk. Say Penner leaves next summer, they'll look to fill that 2nd line LW spot with a power forward to go with Richards and Carter. Hopefully we won't have to think about that though and Penner rejuvenates his career with the Kings and finds his scoring touch.

Hartnell-Richards-Carter would be a heck of a 2nd line of Flyers

The Flyers will probably sign him to an 8 year contract or something, then trade him the following summer.

That would be awesome! He's such a crash-bang kind of player and would open up a lot of space for Carter to snipe. He was a big help to Giroux last season.

I just looked at Selanne's stats. He's 6 goals away from passing Luc on the all time goal list. I wish that ****er would've retired already.

Carter could score 40. But thinking about it, wasn't it Carter and Hartnell who had an issue?
