Near the end he was talking about someone... saying that he "talked to him yesterday" and that it was "exhilarating" because he tried to "get words out of him". Who is he talking about? Was it Andy Murray?
He said he has always wanted to come play in Los Angeles. He always admired the way the Kings play.. with a tremendous amount of grit. LA has been a tough place for him to play just like Philly was before he went there. He hopes to find success in Los Angeles like he did in Philly.
He also said that he and Luc made a deal to get Luc 30 goals this year. hehe.
I thought all players thought the Kings sucked and were a terrible franchise to play for...?

Hey if he can prove he is a King to me on the ice then I will take back all of the bad words and thoughts I have for JR.
I don't like him, never have, never will. He's a GREAT player to watch and alot of fun to have on the team. But he's not a winner and he never will be. He's a sideshow and IMO he came to LA to make his mark in the media.
The Kings just acquired the Charles Barkley of the NHL. He's a helluvalotta fun to watch and listen to but he's not a winner.
JT, I knew you'd hate on this, but didnt I tell you the Kings were gonna add 2, maybe 3 free agents whether anyone liked it or not. I like JR too, he's my favorite NHL player but I would rather have Palffy, who's only 33 or Satan who was 30. We'll see what happens. The good thing is JR plays physical and can probably play till he's 37-8 unlike some of these other brittle European players and still make an impact and if he sucks, he's gone after this year.
The Roenick situation also retty much took them out of the Satan running and getting any reasonable D man, now they are all gone. I wanted McGillis or Rafalski, no chance now, and no one good out there.
Kings still lacking a LW, a #4 D man like Dave Taylor stated and a enforcer who can skate an NHL shift (sorry to my body Flinn, but we'll see come training camp.)
