10 Road Games In A Row!%!?!???!?

ok i'm really hating this year's schedule

feb1 @MIN
feb2 @EDM
feb5 @CGY
feb10@PIT
feb12@WSH
feb13@PHI
feb16@CLB
feb17@NYR
feb19@NYI
feb23@ANA

can you say BANGED UP? williams & smyth won't survive this that's for sure

we usually get terrible schedules so i'm use to the abuse. but last year's schedule was too sweet and here we are again...with this crap!

and right after feb23rd we'll have a home again vs MIN on the 24th...we'll be too tired to compete.

also, you saw the big 3 we're gonna face in 4 days? boom! Pens, blaow! Caps, kaboom! Philly ...

and funny thing is, in the west, San Jose, Anaheim and LA have the longest road trips.

Anaheim 7 games in a row in December
San Jose 7 games in a row in February

which i couldn't care less...

but KINGS with 10 !!! wtfffff


another thing, get ready for booos on saturday october 30th as we host the Devils (if Kovy is with the team).

also, i sure as hell hope we beat Vancouver early (oct 9th, oct 15th) their fans are so cocky

screw bettman, go kings go!

sorry can't blame Bettman for this.
Grammies and NBA All Star week have more to do with the schedule than anything else

At least it is technically 9 as the last one doesn't really count

so? Vancouver had 14 straight games on the road with an olympic break in the middle but still...

i'm just saying that this year's longest road trip is LAand our roster isn't deep enough to sustain it and it sucks! that's all

4 day break between Feb 5th til the next game Feb 10th
3 day break between Feb 19th til the next game Feb 23th in ANA when we'll still be home and just taking a quick ride down the 5.

So it's not like the team will be locked on the road for the entire time.

No, you can blame Uncle Timmy for this.

Remember when the big selling point of Staples was that the Kings would be the first priority tenants?

It seems like ever season, AEG figures out a way to ***** out the Kings to bring in a few extra bucks for Uncle Phil. Slam me if you like, but wouldn't it be interesting if JUST ONCE the Kings had the favorable schedule?

The Lakers have 7 road games in 12 days in February, including 4 games in 5 days. Clippers have 11 road games in a row, but the 11th "road" game is in LA.

AEG are equal opportunity screwers.

I don't like this idea. I have gained a few lbs since I last tried on my bullet proof vest.
