I would personally rather we forfeit them both and not even take the ice.

This team is a disgrace. A bunch of lifeless bums. It is a pity that the young players have to look up to a bunch of over-the-hill, over-paid underachievers. Where is the so-called leadership on this team?

I'm the one accused of being the grammar police. For anyone who cares, see:

The real point is that simple errors in grammar shouldn't be corrected here.

I don't think the Kings could beat an AHL team at this point.

When I played on the AA Junior Ducks we even played our A and THEY WON!

He should've just stepped down at Luc's press conference.

For months I have been saying it is the god damn players (and I even faulted Taylor for putting this group of losers together). It isn't a single player or a member on staff... it is the TEAM that is dreadful. There is no coach who could make this s#it shine.

If I were him I would just leave town and never return....Maybe change my name and move to the Bahamas. Enjoying the sun while half naked ladies serve me ice cold drinks......but that is just me.

Dude.

The team would own if they had even a decent equipment manager.

Who's to blame? Well...interesting question.

The long answer: This team was doomed to fail from the start. They reinvented themselves as an offensive engine, with balanced scoring throughout the forward corps. But they kept the same coach and the same system. A talented, creative group of forwards stuffed into a dump and chase system that eventually wore them down and which was eventually figured out by everyone in the league. They were unable to rebound from that even after Murray was gone...and they shouldn't have been expected to.

There was also the issue of Roenick tanking and removing what the Kings management was predicting to be at least 60-70 points from the line-up. And beyond Roenick, there were really no players who have shown the ability to take their game and their team to another level when things get tough. A lack of drive and determination to get those wins at all costs.

And not to be ignored is the fact that the Kings ended up in a tense locker room environment after they all became fed up with Andy Murray's coaching style.

Combine all of those things together and you have the makings for one disappointing season.

The short answer: It's Pepper's fault.

I am sure they could find somebody.....plus Taylor probably already knows that his time is up....he might lose it during the ceremony.
