Sorry for the tons of questions, just trying to keep track of the pre-season stats for the Kings.

Zeiler (73) was one of the players that caught my eye along with Korchinski (62) in the physical aspect of the game laying the body. Zeiler had at least 2 solid hits as the game got physical. Korchinski broke a play that led to a king's goal.

Great game tonight, super impressed with Kopitar. That kid is going to be something special, great skills and a lot of confidence in his game. I have no dount the tournement is a two horse race right now, Phoenix and San Jose were just bad.

He's still rehabbing. No way he'll be playing in this tourney.

Al isn't there. He's already on the road working.

Seriously Roussin is like Robitaille in that he's great in front of the net. He's got skills, he's just got to capitalize on them. Hopefully Crawford can whip him into shape.

Was on a date, showed up late and left early. Kopitar was by far the best player out there.

The hitting was great, not as common as I thought, but when it happened it was devastating. Noticed Moulson a lot out there and Lukacevic and his speed. Korchinski threw a monster hit.

Saw Marc Crawford on my way out, guy smiled at us and was talking to people. Seemed like a nice guy.

Also saw Cammy driving around on his cell phone in the parking lot.

Also had a little fight with a Duck {Maxwell ?} late into the 3rd, but had little left as again was already on the ice for an extended shift killing a penalty. I agree he'll start and spend most his time in Manchester again this year, but he reminds me of a younger and healthier Aaron Miller, look for him to replace Miller someday.

Kopitar ... everything you knew he'd be, dominate on the ice when he wanted to be, simply the best player on the ice tonight.

Hogeboom ... needs to step it up a notch !

Mormina ... Solid enough.

Harrold ... Solid for the most part, but I saw at least 2 passes he was damn lucky the Duck rookie didn't get a stick on first, or could have been trouble, aside from the reckless passing, another solid D man for the future.

Holloway ... penalty magnet, got demoted off Kopitar's line in the 3rd and replaced with Hogeboom, maybe just a bad night ?

Roussin ... was sporting an A on his chest and like Reaper says I can see the potential talent, would have been nice if he burried that breakaway he got in the 2nd, oh well, but Danny is one of the few guys I saw camping out in front of the net and trying to get into the head of the Ducks goalie. The kid is a hard worker and should be given more time to develop, he COULD be something nice in the future.

Lukacevic ... speed, and a solid PK man

Werner ... the other penalty magnet tonight

Matt Moulson ... {was #70} Conor James WHO ? this kid appears to be the real deal and Manchester will love him, 2 goals tonight, skates hard, and back checks, solid player from what you can tell watching just one game.

Bernier .... {Played the whole game and got the win} I find it difficult to fault goalies for 5 on 3's, funny how every time the Kings scored the refs would call 2 in a row on the Kings ? Other than that made a real nice save in the 3rd, and was solid 5 on 5 and 5 on 4, as was the Kings D ..... no complaints about Bernier from me.

Ok ..... granted I have a Kings bias of course but overall they sure looked like they dominated the majority of this game, aside from the penalties did the Ducks ever score a goal 5 on 5 ? I don't think so .......

Also Crawford was there, saw him down near the dressing rooms during the game.

And I didn't think Bobby Ryan looked all that special ?

Also in case anyone wanted to know the Coyotes beat the Sharks in the 1st game, though I thought the Sharks looked like the better team most of the game.
"Kopitar ... everything you knew he'd be, dominate on the ice when he wanted to be, simply the best player on the ice tonight."

Thats very refreshing (although I already know he deserved to be the #1 ranked Euro in '05 draft) considering Bobby Ryan was out there for the ducks as well, and some of the other top prospects from all four teams playing tonight.

This was the first time I saw him play, so I don't think I can answer that question based on talent evaluation. However, based on age and other things, I would expect him to play in Manchester.

I wasn't really focused on them that much. From what I did see of them, Holloway was killing penalties and looked OK, nothing special. Schira I did watch a little, but not really enough to say anything.

Sorry, but Ryan was the only Ducks player I was paying much attention to.

Did not focus much on McLaren, Lukacevic looked same as prior times I've seen him play. Decent penalty killer, excellent speed, nothing else to get excited about.

How'd Gabe look? I think this guy may be the sleeper to make the team.

Gabe played well, but from last nights effort, I would say that the only one that plays at that NHL level is Kopitar. He is dominant. He is so composed with the puck, and can go just about anywhere with it. His passing is amazing, his skating is actually very good. He can change direction on a dime, and his shooting accuaracy is top notch.
I sat with a scout from the Nashville Predators, and he was talking very highly of Kopitar, Tukonen, and Pushkarev. He said Kopitar, and O'Sullivan will be stars at the NHL level. He also was very high on Pushkarev, with an emerging skill set like a Datsyuk or Nagy. He also said that he had Kopitar pegged as the #2 pick behind Crosby. Anyway, it was a great night seeing hockey, and the stands were full of hockey brass, scouts, parents of the players and genuine hockey nuts. I'm looking forward to tonight.

Hey man I was not even supposed to go until Monday. I swung by to catch a little because my date was cool and wanted to see what is about. I usually stay for the whole games even when we get blown out and my buddies who are Blues fans are taunting me...I'll be there for both games Monday dudes.

Until this past season, when I did it with alarming regularity, the only hockey game I *ever* left early was that "Miracle On Manchester." --- I believe Doug Smith took a completely unnecessary hooking penalty at center ice in the early moments of the 3rd period, and I stood from my seat of six seasons (Section 12, Row L, Seat 5), having missed maybe 2 games in that entire span, and announced to the friends around me that I was done... It was some time around 5 the next morning, as I stood in front of a urinal at the Rainbow Club in Gardena that I looked up at a tacked up copy of the LA Times sports section, and learned about what I had missed. Never left a game early for almost 20 years prior to that, and as I said, until this past season hadn't done it since.

Wow, getting a little defensive. Dating is good, date all you want. Because when you get married with children you end up having to rely on others giving you the info about the game. Unless she's a real porker, get in and out before anyone will see you
