I still do not think there has been enough of a sample size on him yet. I thnk he is only effective as a top 6 thoough. I also think Penner is best on the 3rd.

The last 21 games Gagne played (including playoffs and regular season), he had 0 goals. That is bad. He doesn't do many other things well or that stand out so when he ain't scoring, he ain't contributing. One thing for Richards to struggle like he did with scoring toward the end of last year, because he can still play center, hit, fight, pass, etc...but Gagne is worthless if he can't score or use his speed.

Richards needs to step his game up though. Hes had a few moments like game 1 of the playoffs and a few other spots where hes been really good. But mostly he hasnt lived up to the hype. Im really hoping he pulls it together soon.

Didn't he just play like 2 games in the playoffs?

I have a feeling it's time for Quick to stand on his head.

He'll be pissed after last game and going to flex some muscle.

GKG!

I'll be at the game tonight. Possibly the only live game I'll see all season. Looking forward to seeing Kopi destroy the Avs' sorry defense.

Anyone else from here going to the game?

And 16 of those 21 games were under Murray and a mass in his neck, and 4 of the remaining 5 was with a mass in his neck.

Maybe a little bit of leniency is warranted.

Not to mention the fact he played very limited minutes in the playoffs. I thought he looked better in those limited minutes than he had during the regular season.

I'm not worried whatsoever about Quick's mentality/complacency/lack of compete. I'm worried about Quick's arguably limited mobility and athleticism after back surgery and essentially not playing a competitive game of hockey in 7 months. I think it takes a while for him to get back on track.

BTW, I think it's hilarious that Doughty was one of the few Kings to have a good opening season game, when it's usually the exact opposite. Kid is going to step it up even more defensively with Mitchell and Greene injured, I think.

I still want to see what Gagne is capable of without the neck bulge injury thing he's struggled with for years. Even though it won't happen I'd like to see King scratched for the following forward lineup this evening:

Gagne-Kopitar-Williams
Brown-Richards-Carter
Penner-Stoll-Lewis
Clifford-Fraser-Nolan

Colorado not having ROR is a huge hole. It makes players on Colorado play positions they are not suited for.

Should be a good game.

Man, with all the doom and gloom the last couple of days, you would think the Kings were going on year 46 without a Cup.
Nobody knows what to expect with Muzzin in the lienup. I feel a lot more comfortable with Muzzin playing in a Sutter system than I do when he played in a Murray system.

Looks like Richards is wearing the "A" now that Greene is out.

I have the Colorado feed on CI. I wonder if Gags is being used as trade bait? I know people said he was bad in the first game and it sounds like Sutter is sending a message, which I like. Nothing sends a message like scratching a veteran. Hopefully it will wake the rest of the team up.
