A Team Divided

I rarely get to watch my beloved Kings, but they were on Sportsnet tonight so I got the chance to watch the game. My impression is that we are in for a good future, but right now this team is a team divided between one that will pay the price and one that is a bunch of floating wussies.

On the good side:

Cammy: Putting him out there with Armstrong and Tambellini was not the best decision. Armstrong clearly couldn't keep up with his linemates while Cammy and Tambs needed a big guy to clear them some room. I also saw Cammy willing to get his nose dirty and he showed some real hustle. Has heart, has talent, needs support.

Tambellini: Wants to prove he belongs with the big club. Put the pressure on but isn't willing to use his body like might midget Cammy is. Even if you're not the biggest guy you still have to be willing to hammer a guy in the guts, just look at Mike Peca. That being said, Tambs showed skill, showed speed, and was playing the kind of game he needed to play all night long.

Gleason: Will fight with Chara. That gets him big points even if he does lose. Kid has guts and soul. I really want to see him get a chance at some offense. Needs more time, but he's in the right place right now.

Norstrom: Loved the way he was third man in and was there to back up Avery all game. The quiet warrior is still the captain, and for good reason.

Corvo: Even though people get violently upset with him on this board I thought Joe did what I wanted Visnovsky to do. He went out there every shift and tried to make things happen. I did count one time where he did not pursue the puck with urgency, and that has to be picked up on, but the rest of the time he wanted to be out there and he wanted to win. I didn't see that from guys like Miller and Visnovsky.

Avery: THIS is what the team needs to be built around. Avery needs to quit yapping at the officials. Quit playing "poor me" Sean. You put yourself in that position. At the same time he's out there every shift throwing hard hits, getting in people's faces and he's the only one who pursued the rebound tonight. The rest of the team just let Ottawa's defense push them around. Avery has all the heart and soul we need. If his head would catch up to the rest of him, he'd be scary. Give it a couple of years.

Average:

Frolov: Lots of skill but this guy really needs a sparkplug on his line. I actually think putting him out there with Avery for a while would do him a lot of good. Was always on in the offensive zone but did not show the backchecking he was supposed to be famous for. Is passing the puck a lot more though, which is good. Would love to see him shoot some. Also needs to learn to hit people, then he'd be scary.

Demitra: Got a goal, blah blah blah, we all expect that of him. Really, the guy can't be counted on to be the heart and soul of the team, he's the offense.

Conroy: Usually plays better, I think he just had an off night tonight. Didn't see much out of him at all good or bad. Sometimes that's not a bad thing, but the Kings needed him to step up and lead the team tonight.

Brown: The good thing about Brown is that he's got all the physical game he needs. We really need him to be hitting out there because nobody else will besides Norstrom, Gleason and Avery. Brownie has all the heart and soul we could want coming back from that hit from behind and still going to the net. What he needs to remember is that he can also score. I think he's forgotten that. He's had success hitting so he's trying to hit all the time instead of building on it and going for the goals too. Looks like he really wants to please his teammates but isn't playing up to what he could. I actually think putting him on a line with Frolov and somebody else would spark both of them. Puppy was a good nickname for him because he really wants to please, but unless he's humping your leg really hard he's just sitting in the middle of the room looking lost. Throw him a ball though and he knows what to do with it.

Bad:

Visnovsky: Hello, tin man? We've found some heart for you. Really, it's all in Sean Avery's body. That play on the last (or second to last, I forget just which) Ottawa goal, that was what I call "being a gutless puke". Ottawa should have taught you a lesson tonight and that is that you take hits, make plays, and win games through playing for your teammates. You were invisible all night Lubo and you can play better than that.

Armstrong and Belanger: I almost want to put them in the average category just for trying but these guys are too lax on any one thing to make them really useful. They can't fight, are weak hitters, don't make enough quality plays to make a regular difference, and try to do everything themselves. Belanger does win faceoffs, and both of them bring an honest, hard working effort to the team. Unfortunately that's not enough to be playing more than 7 or 8 minutes a night.

Cowan: Yes, you fought Kelly. Yipee. Where were you all night when Sean was getting mauled? Cowan can obviously fight low level heavy weights but he wasn't out there and wasn't willing to do it. He also didn't bring the physical game he needs to have in order to really make a difference when he's out there. I realize he doesn't play a whole lot, but he plays enough that when he's out there, we need him to make the other team think twice.


Overall this team is divided between the heartfelt, pay the price, back your teammates up style of Avery, Norstrom, Brown, and to a lesser degree Cammy, Conry and Tambs and the half efforts of the Cowans, Armstrongs, Belangers, and Visnovskys of the team. Fro and Demitra I think just follow the general order of the team. When everybody else works hard, or the puck ends up on their stick, they play hard. Otherwise they coast looking for opportunities instead of looking to make them happen (Cammy and Tambs on the other hand were begging for somebody to help them make some magic). I saw a team that didn't want to pay the price out there tonight, and that was really disturbing. The guys who were willing to pay were mostly under 6 feet tall. If I were Frolov, I'd be ashamed about that. Part of improving as a player is improving yourself as a teammate, and that's something that isn't stressed enough.

The powerplay and pk suck because there is no sense of urgency about this team short of the guys I put up there at the top of the list. Ottawa was fast, but they were also hungry. Really hungry. The Kings don't need to look at game tapes, they need to look at the look in the eyes of the Senators players. They need to find that hunger. They also need to stick up for one another. JR has got to get back in that locker room and give them the riot act on that. Until this team stops being a bunch of professionals and learns to love that crest and play for everybody else in that locker room, we will have an up and down season. Ottawa's a family. We're a team. That's a big difference.

What this game showed me is that we really need more of our young guys coming up. The youth on this team makes it run. Players like Armstrong, Cowan, Belanger, I now see why many people consider them dead weight that needs to be trimmed. They don't play like they want to be here. We need some size up the middle, unfortunately it's playing in Sweden this year. It sounds like Tukonen is the next guy to be ready to make the jump and he can't make it too soon in my books if the team doesn't start playing a more physical game. Unfortunately, we haven't stocked ourselves with those bodies. Next season, when DT's looking at UFAs for the third and fourth lines, he should be looking at the ability to play solid two-way games but really up the physical presence on this team so that the Cammys and Tambs of the team can work their magic.

All for now,

T2M

I think that people were (as I was) intimidated by the length of the post and so put off replying

I agree. Great post, T2M. Thanks for taking the time to put all of that down.

Armstrong & Belanger - I'm glad to finally have someone who agrees with me on these two. They have just never excited me, like a lukewarm cup of cofee. They bring more than enough to be in the lineup, but not to be given the big roles that they're given.

Armstrong was really bugging me last night because he would give up too early on the puck and take his eye off of it. Many times, he'd do this and he'd end up looking off into space as the puck slowly went right through his skates or right behind him. Since he had no clue it was there, he ruined chances to gain possession and the Sens would invariably grab it and clear it out of the zone before Derek realized where it was. He needs to be much more focused on the little black disc and intent on chasing it down if he wants to be on the 2nd line.

Belanger is much better at hounding down the puck, but has a real problem with puck possession and playmaking, Armstrong's strength. If you could squish those two together and make one player out of them, you'd have a very complete player.

Corvo - I was afraid that the Sens would twist him into a pretzel, but that didn't happen, and I agree that he really tried to make things happen.

Conroy - He had a breakaway (wish he hadn't tried 5-hole on Hasek), a 2-on-0 (which Brown should not've passed on, since Craig is right-handed) and a point-blank shot up close. I can't fault him for effort. He had his chances.

Brown - He's looked slightly better in these games in which he's been paired with Avery and Belanger. I'm still not happy, but it's better than he's been on any other lines, so he should probably stay there.

Cammalleri - Had some great chances. He hit the post and also almost had one off the side of the crease.

Tambellini - The nervousness that made him fumble the puck on Wednesday was gone, but it still doesn't feel like he's comfortable. He did have one great chance that Hasek stopped. I wish that we could see more of what people were talking about with regards to him, such as his wrist shot, but he has to get the puck into better scoring positions and that entire line is having problems creating plays.

For anyone replying, let's not quote T2M's entire post (all one billion words of it) when replying (especially with only a smilie). It makes the thread hard to read and is bad board etiquette... *cough*KingBrath*cough*

Some good points.

WRT What this game showed me is that we really need more of our young guys coming up

There isn't much left in Manchester that's going to help at this point and really nobody with any size once you get past Petiot...

Which is the problem at this point. Oh well. I'd just like to see some more heart from these guys. A little indoctrination from Kings fans would go a long way. I know a lot of guys on this board would take a bullet for that crest (maybe some of you have when you go over to the Pond). I just wish that some of the players were like that too.

Good post T2M, excellent points all around. But didn't Visnovski give Heatley a nice open ice hipcheck?

Lubo's game may not be physical as you's like, but he can defend well and proved it last night on that Heatley check.

I'm amused that NOTHING was said about the goaltending. This guy Labarbera is a magic man. He can escape criticism like no other goaltender in Kings history.

I'll humor you Tubby - Barbs got lit up like the Xmas tree at Rockefeller Center last night. He's not been on top of his game since he returned from personal leave. Would have been interesting to see Garon handle the Sens as he's had the hotter glove lately.

Well the Frenchies get to play at home tonight, so we'll see how they do, I'm expecting big games from belanger, Luc and Garon, not to mention Avery. I want to see Avery with a hat trick.

If LaBarbera's next performance is anything like last night, then Garon has to be considered the #1 and get the majority of the starts, IMO. At the very least, I'd play Garon in both Montreal and Toronto.

The hipcheck was nice, I'll give him that. I'm not asking him to start playing like Peca, but when your team is down 4-1 I'm asking that you not give up like he did by not pursuing the puck with enough heart. One nice hipcheck does not negate the fact that if you're going to be one of the team's leaders you've got to play like every shift counts. When he's not willing to take a hit to make a play that sends a message - you can physically intimidate him. Not what I want to see from a guy who's supposed to be a leader on the blueline. Yes, the hipcheck was nice, but until he starts playing like every shift matters he's not going to be in my good books.

Good call on me. I'd forgotten all about LaBarbera who was lukewarm. The Bochenski shot he needed to save. That wasn't a goal scorers goal. That was a bad play on Barb's part. For the most part I thought LaBarbera was average. Made some saves but got lit up at all the wrong times (the Valiquette goal anybody?) For all the talk of him being a game breaker earlier he was, as others have said, average. I just didn't think his head was in the game. Again, he needs to step up for the rest of the team. I realize I'm asking this of everybody but if you want to win you've got to lead the team there with your play. That goes from Matty, to the assistants, down to the fourth liners. LaBarbara while solid, was not there when the Kings needed him the most.

<sarcasm> As for Garon, well, I'm a big fan of the way that he keeps the bench warm on most nights. Apparently the ice was melting near his end of the bench from the heat from his butt. Unfortunately, he sported some good cheers, but wasn't nearly vocal enough for my liking. If I can't hear him over that Ottawa crowd, then he isn't pulling his weight. He'd better be in net next game, he wasn't keeping the bench energized enough. </sarcasm>

There you go Tubby, enjoy.

i also get frustrated watching Lubo...We've seen the offesnsive player he can be...but then he'll go a several games where he decides not to shoot the puck....instead, he'll just be seen fumbling passes at the point and making bad passes....If he isnt producing offesnsively, then he is almost useless on this team...

Perhaps his size is a disadvatange he needs to overcome every night...but he needs to learn to make the most of his offensive abilities on a consistent basis...

did the Kings reveal what LaBarbera's "family issues" were...b/c it seemed like after his 5-0 start, his play has tailed off a lot....even if the wins were aginst bad teams, he still made the saves that he is not making now....
