So if it must in in a football stadium that one is an icon. I think that if the draft does well in LA that it would help the Kings cause. I look at the year 2017 as the year that could be the Kings year, if this sideshow event goes on that long.
Well, what they say, and what they can truly accomplish may be two differnet things.

I went to Frozen Fury One, which was played outdoors in 90+ degree heat and the ice was melting, and several players talked afterwards about how bad the ice was. So I am not so sure that ice issues wouldnt be a problem if we got a Santa Ana on New Year's Day.

But a Kings -- Av's game in Denver should have none of those problems.
Do it Bettman!
