"I knew he was good, but man, I didn't know he was this good He's strong on the puck, and his hands are nice. He's a young Jaromir Jagr. He's that size; he has those kind of hands. I think, at times, he doesn't know how good he really is. He's out there laughing having fun. It's exciting to be with a guy who is 23 and starting to come into his own.... With the new rules, you can't stop him in front of the net unless you take a penalty. One on one, he's going to make you look silly." - Craig Conroyon Alexander Frolov
"I still want to play playoff game and try to win the Stanley Cup. I'm just 23 years old. I'm looking forward next 12 or whatever years." - Alexander Frolov
"When Pavol was a young guy, he was different. First of all, he had hair. He didn't say a lot, but you knew he was going to be a great player. The second year in St. Louis, he shaved his head and we had six or seven Slovakian players. I don't know if that made him more comfortable, but all of a sudden he was an upper-echelon player." - Craig Conroyon Pavol Demitra
So a Russian, a Slovak and a New Yorker walk into a hockey arena … "… and the only one you can understand is the New Yorker. You don't know what those other guys are saying." - Craig Conroy
So a Russian, a Slovak and a New Yorker walk into a hockey arena, and the only one you can understand is the New Yorker? ... "I'll get Craig a Russian dictionary. Pavol speaks Russian, we know what each other is saying." - Alexander Frolov
"I don't know if we're going to have a tougher stretch all year, to tell you the truth. If we come off this road trip nine or 10 games over .500, I can see this team really exploding, maybe becoming one of the tops in the league. We definitely know about it. Everybody has looked at the schedule and has been excited for it." - Jeremy Roenickon the Kings' upcoming road trip
"I looked at his eyes, and he looked so bad. He was almost going out of consciousness, and I looked at his eyes and said, 'Hey, stay with me. Stay awake. Stay awake.'" - Mattias Norstromon Ryan Flinn's injury
King forward Ryan Flinn will be reevaluated today by team doctor Michael Mellman after suffering a concussion during Saturday's game against Chicago at Staples Center.
A report from back specialists who examined Valeri Bure in Florida last Tuesday revealed nothing different from the original diagnosis. The Kings have said Bure has a protruding disk in his back.
iTS shaped like a guitar pick. Anyways...the Kings really need to beat Detroit this time...coming out strong and getting the lead first would be a great start. We need a big game from our top lines and hopefully Brown can get it going and Roenick can keep improving!
Go KinGs Go!!!!!
Avery will drop them with Maltby and Maltby will turtle, and yet everyone will call Avery a (insert favorite anti Avery sentiment here) for not fighting.
Pfft...that punk Avery will probably punch him while he's downon the ice, trying to protect himself. Really:
what sort of crazed damaged imbecillic chump punches a turtling player when he can't fight back

He looks more like Clarence "Screaming Buffalo" Swamptown.
I'm still waiting for him to be interviewed so that he can finally reveal that he calls his hockey stick the "Big Tomahawk," and he usually refers to the opposing players as "the little scalps".
