No. Brown dives.

I just dislike Brown. Ribeiro has calmed down the outright diving - he jerks his head back at non-high sticks, but so do a lot of guys (and now with his, er, history with high sticks, I can't blame him) - though he obviously embellishes still like every other player in the history of existence. Ott's not a diver, but he can definitely be a punk. But he's our punk, and that makes all the difference.

Brown irritates me more than most individual players because he's an outright flopper but also tries to play a physical style of game with some dangerous elements like charges and elbows. He's a guy who can give it but not take it, and he's too much of a star to get any deserved league discipline for the flops. Plus he's a team captain and some of his younger, impressionable teammates seem to be taking after his bad habits.

On the plus side, the LA TV guys are the best not-Dallas crew in the Pacific and one of the better ones in the league. And other than Brown, none of their players are particularly objectionable as individuals.

really I only hate brown, the rest of their team is just meh. I probably hate them more than the yotes though. I still don't mind Tippett.

I won't go so far as to say Ribeiro doesn't dive anymore, he does sometimes. But mostly its embellishing things already going on, which every player does now. "Feel a stick Stick between the feet, fall down" kind of stuff.

Ott doesn't dive, he's just an agitator.

Brown is a piece of ****. The cocky way he runs around and then tries to just skate into people and fall down, immediately looking to the refs, is just so infuriating. How people can compare someone falling down when a stick is between their feet to purposely looking for contact so you can embellish it, I don't know.

LAK is prob my least favorite Pacific team. The way their fans talk down other teams despite the fact they've won nothing and have sucked for a very long time until recently is perplexing.

Completely agree. Definitely have gone out of my way just so I can listen to them.

Wow loving this banter so far, tonight will be fun.

I wish we were full strength so both teams could go head to head with no excuses..

The biggest problem I see with Brown diving is he wears the "C". That means a lot in the NHL and captains shouldnt drop and dive like that. You would never see Morrow do that, or lidstrom or Iginla..etc.

If he wants to play like a genuine power forward, hit, score, be generally imposing (which he does well) then he needs to drop the soccer-diving act.

LA fans can yip yap about Ribeiro all they want, but he is not the captain of our team.

LA has the equivalent of a fairy queen wearing their C, seeking contact just so he can flop for a call.

Watching the videos posted in this thread just makes me cringe.

EDIT: catters beat me to it

For some reason I just thought you copied and pasted those completely from somewhere else, hence with best intentions I wasn't blaming you.

Yeah, they won't be the same the whole game plus we don't know if Langenbrunner is good to go. Benn double shifts a lot. Morrow and Ribeiro will be together. Those are about the only certain things.

In LA perhaps, but not in the OC. Going to a game at the Honda Center is like church, and not one of those wild Pentecostal ones. This is a big reason I prefer the Kings. The arena experience is SOOOOO much better. Better music, better lighting effects, better intermission activities, better mascot, Heidi Androl, and more passionate fans. I admit I chuckle each time they show Cartman yapping "Hey y'all! I'm a Dallas Stars fan!" on the jumbotron (which is another plus: brand new this season, HD, almost as wide as the rink... basically what Jerry Jones would want installed in his hypothetical basketball/hockey arena).

All this plus, as mentioned before, their TV and radio guys are VASTLY superior. (Thank God Severyn left Anaheim radio to the Big D.)

I'd love to see Morrow go after the diving lisp guy again.

Brown is a disgrace to the C he wears on his sweater.

Really hate these 9:30 starts. And it really has nothing to do with actually trying to get to sleep before midnight. It has to do with waiting until 9:30 for the damn game to start.

Hey, how do you think I feel?

Already know I won't be able to watch most of this game. Stupid late starts.

With Richards out its a complex system, they usually rotate benn and eriksson through 3 lines. This is i guess a close look.

Vincour-Benn-Eriksson
Morrow-Ribeiro-Burish
Ott-Wandell-Langenbrunner
Barch-Petersen-Williams
