Chicken Parm Gives Kopitar Praise

http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/ray_ferraro/?id=296991

"With only one playoff appearance in the last six seasons, the Los Angeles Kings have been accused of selling hope, and nothing else. Their greatest treasures come from the past -- the Triple Crown Line, Wayne Gretzky, Kelly Hrudey and Luc Robitaille. But now they have someone of substance as the face of their franchise - the league's most unknown star Anze Kopitar.

How unknown? Watch highlights and hear the announcers call him An-zee.... it's Ahn-jay actually guys."

"He's in the best shape of his career, stronger than he has ever been and now able to handle 20-plus minutes a night. Kopitar aspires to be talked about in the same grouping as Crosby, Malkin and Ovechkin. When I spoke to him this week, I was impressed with his desire to be in that grouping, but also with how humble and team oriented he is. Some guys talk the talk, but you know it's just routine to them, with Kopitar, I saw a kid who likes the responsibility that goes with his stature, but understands it's not about only him. He was part of a group of Kings who stayed in L.A. during July to train together. The group feels that doing so has helped them grow tighter after a pretty good late season run last year.

When you are watching the Kings, look closely at Kopitar, you are watching a star. And his name is Ahn-jay Kopitar."

Interesting quote from a guy who has referred to Kopitar as Ann-Zee for 3 years.

BTW- I'm sick of quotes like "selling hope" to the fans. It's not like King's management was misleading to Kings fans. The franchise floundered for decades without ever building anything. As a fan of the Kings I feel they were very "up front" with us about what to expect and for how long.
They "sold hope" to us for good reason! The future was ALL THERE WAS to be excited about! Now the future is arriving and we fans have something to be excited about.

Kopitar needs a new nickname. I dub thee: Anze The Giant.
