any word on some kind of tribute or acknowledgment for Lubo tonight?
There should be, as well as a lengthy standing ovation when he takes the ice. Lubo deserves recognition for all the time spent with this organization and what he had accomplished with us. He signed a contract to stay a King his entire career, if it wasn't for AEG telling Dean that he had a self-imposed payroll cap Lubo would still be here. I for one, wish him the best. I actually hope he scores tonight. He deserves it after how that trade went down. But of course, I also hope Kopitar scored a hat trick and wins the game =P Lets play a good game! GO KINGS!
"I think part of his game is hes over aggressive at times, which I like. Well tame that. Id rather tame a lion than paint stripes on the kitty cat." - Dean Lombardi discussing Brayden McNabb
I cant be at the game, nor the three after that (I will be out of town), but it would nice, and fitting, for Lubo to get some appreciation from the fans. Beyond that, lets CRUSH this Oiler team and send them back to the frozen tundra from whence they come!!!
Just know that ERSBERG is in net and Gauthier is a game day decision.
On a separate issue, I wonder if Lubo cares at this point. Lubo never struck me as an emotional player or really passionate. He seems very matter of fact. If I were betting, I would put money that he cares little about coming back. He may say that it was a little weird to be back but you have to focus on the game, blah blah blah.
Remember that one game... dont remember what season, but it was like Kings and Oilers had a 5 games losing streak, and it was like "whose gonna break their losing streak" but the Oilers had like 10 injured guys
