I don't have a great feeling about tonight, Los Angeles (a team that has always given Dallas fits) adding Dustin Penner (a player that has always given Dallas fits) seems like a match made in hell for the Stars.
Then again we beat LA pretty convincingly last time around, mabye they have another one in them
LA sucks. Hopefully the league sent down a memo to watch the Kings for dives after Doughty pussed things up on Saturday. I expect Steve Ott to thrive in this game. This is where he is most useful. LA seems like a team that can get rattled, much like Anaheim was.
I'm all for supporting players being smart and putting other players in bad positions to draw a call, but there's a difference between "keeping your feet moving" and walking into a guy then flopping on the ice.
Man didn't realize dallas fans hated us this much. And I was about to say you guys were my least hated out of all the pacific teams.
As a transplant, I adopted the LA Kings as my hockey team of choice in SoCal. But that first game in LA this season left a bitter taste in my mouth. My respect for Brown, who used to be my favorite non-Star, is at an all-time low.
Still prefer the Kings to the Schmucks. Alot still needs to happen before that changes.
And I was about to say you guys were my least hated out of all the pacific teams.
And the same applies for LA for me. But I think that's out of default (or at least because I hate/dislike so many other people on the other 3 teams). San Jose is by far, imo, our biggest Pacific rival. Anaheim hate has died down but I still hate them more than LA. Phoenix I just love beating because of Tippett and I hate Shane Doan.
As gin says above, that first game in LA was the worst taste I've had for a team following a game in a long time (and seeing the replays of it for the first time in 2011 really brings all the hate right back). I was more pissed off after that game than I was any of the fail Turco games.
No hate for the team, just hate for diving/unsportsmanlike behaviour.
Speak for yourself. LA has the cockiest fans for no particular good reason like previous success. LA is easily my 3rd least favorite team behind Detroit and San Jose. Doughty is a whiny *****, Brown is a diving *****, and Kopitar is overrated.
