"A team never benefits from panic. We need urgency, not panic. When we lost those four games, should we have addressed every problem, every play? No. I think sometimes you just have to play. Some nights you hit the post, some nights the puck goes in." - Mattias Norstrom
The Kings placed center Eric Belanger on the injured reserve list (retroactive to Dec. 30) because of a groin injury.
Dustin Brown is "day-to-day" after suffering an "upper-body injury" during the Kings/Stars game on Monday.
Jeremy Roenick (broken finger) is targeting a January 21st return.
You're joking...but the Kings had to go the entire 03/04 season knowing that their goalie was bound by that mandate.
You know, I coach football, and I have these types of kids, I always have one everyyear it seems, that have to jump/dive/flop on the floor for everything. Any pass near them they must jump for, if the running back is out of their reach, they have to dive for him, and 99.9% of the time, it's completely un-necesary. I dont know if they think it's cool or what, but I think that Cechmanek had the same characteristic, and I don't know if he ever grew out of it, or if it made him look cooler as the fat kid who was forced to play goaltender or what.
