Luc Robitaille

I just watched an hour long interview with him. He seems like such a great guy. I know he was a big part of the King's organization and I figured I'd post this. It was interesting to hear that he was drafted in the ninth round! What a diamond in the rough. Very humble and extraordinarily talented.

Peace

A great player. The guy who was never supposed to make it.

As long as he stays in the background and doesn't get involved with any player personnel, trade, management, signings and acquisitions, and every once in a while at least tries to fake knowing what it means to be President of Business Operations, then I am cool and hope he has a long substantively irrelevant, brand based administrative career here.

I think he's done a good job of trying to spread the awareness of the Kings in LA. I never used to see ads for the team on billboards or anything. Now we do.

He's trying to get LA back into hockey and I like that.

I wouldn't mind seeing Luc as a part time amateur scout...in case one of our scouts overlooked something on a guy that we may have in our radar...

Perfectly said, I do fear though that he may one day get a chance to be the GM . . . if that happens. . .

I don't know. He is a emotional guy. He gets excited over what he loves. Which is why we love him. He loves hockey and he loves the Kings. He brought JR back for the Kings web site because he likes JR. If Blake's jersey gets retired it will be because Luc likes Rob Blake. When you talk to him he you know where he stands.

That is why he should never be a GM or scout. He is not analytical enough. Once he likes something he can not see the down side. He would not have traded Purcell because he would have seen the promise of the AHL scorer Teddy was and not what happened. I could see Luc taking over Lieweke's job some day.

I was just using it as a reference to show that Luc will do things (hire people) because they are friends without thinking.

I don't see how whatsoever. We love Luc and hate JR.

Its sad that JR is more deeply rooted in your brain than Luc.
