OK this is sick. Yeah the ref's are only getting paid to call King penalties (or so it seems) but this is two nights and two third period collapses. Stupid line combo's and it looks like all the Kings men are not gonna be able to put Humpty back together again.

What happened to our early season vaunted defense?

Where is Dustin Brown on the score sheet, or Kopitar for that matter?

Why do I have to hear the names Armstrong and Calder at all?

Can Ivanans be given more ice time to take stupid penalties?

Why does our coach not see that Sully-Kopitar-Brown can make things happen?

Why do we all see these problems but the coach doesnt?

Why does this team frequently show so much promise and then just look like it cant do anything right?

Maybe Junior asked the right question after the Edmonton win the other night: why is TM our coach?

Maybe we are all forgetting that this team really isnt that good yet, and we all got too excited by early season success?

Maybe December does us in again?

God I hope not!!!

Look at Kopitar's shoot pct. Or O'Sullivan's or Brown's. I mean it's not like they're connecting either. We need our top guys to score when they're out there on the PP.

It's been our defensive zone breakdowns that have cost us, not just those two.

This Idiot is seriously worse than Crawford...no kidding.

I'm sure Dean must be loving how his two franchise forwards that he signed to big long term deals have suddenly turned into crap under the leadership of The Idiot.

Wake up Dean, you have the building blocks in place for something special in a couple of years, you like to talk about "phases" well you are taking a step back in the phase with this idiot behind the bench.

We all expected this to be a long year, but the way some of the core guys have stepped back is extremely alarming.

Fro must be hurt as he has been gone for awhile.

I think Calder had a decent game tonight, but i just don't think you are going to sustain any offense at all with the way the line ups have been run. It might help somewhat defensively at times, but to get offense going you just need to have a top six who are actually top six players.

The line ups changes in the second half of the game was perplexing to me to say the least.

Frolov hurt? I can't imagine why he would not be on the ice in the final minutes of the game...especially since he is the only player on this team that is scoring.

Ever since 1993 the Refs have waged an all out war to destroy the Kings. The black and white versus the black and purple

I was only able to tune into the third period (just after Lisin's first goal). I was worried that Frolov was injured. It's absurd that he could be benched in favour of Calder... no matter what the circumstance may be. I came on here looking for an injury report, but I guess nothing has developed yet. If Frolov isn't injured, Murray's decision making is pathetic.

Doughty fading fast...maybe he started believing the hype? He doesn't have the same sense of urgency.

Come on, did anyone really think that Murray was anything more than a "bridge" coach for this team? He was brought in to teach and not yell at the kids, that is all. He is here to keep the scores close to give the illusion of progress.

Other than shots against being lower, I do not see any progress from this team. The Kings have become as boring to watch as the Stars.

At least the Sharks are thwomping the Maple Laughs tonight

But yeah, this team is more depressing than it ever has been, at least since the god-awful first 2 games... and the shutout against Anaheim... and the shutout against Anaheim... and the shutout against Vancouver

Screw it, the Kings offense decided not to show up this year

Diehard,

I have given up answering most of those questions. Murray's apologists can say its only 20+ games, but I already despise this coach, and he certainly isn't the guy I think is going to take this team to the next level over the next few years. I have never been so frustrated with a coach in any sport in my life, I just want to throw things at my tv.

- On Ivanans, Once again, another team that didn't dress a goon, but we feel the need to dress Ivanans and play him a regular shift every game. I guess almost all the other NHL teams who don't dress goons are in the wrong and Murray is right. I still ask all the Ivanans fans, when the other team isn't dressing a goon, what is his purpose?

- Calder. I just don't know what to say anymore. We all see it, even other teams fans see it, I get IM's from friends around the country asking why the Kings have Kyle Calder with Kopitar. Has the Idiot ever even addressed to the media why he plays Calder with Kopitar?


- How can he break up the Frolov- Zues- Stoll line after they played so well early on and last night?
