In sticking with the national theme of the day, it’s time to vote!
Because there’s only one political party here – the LA Kings Nation – think of this more like a primary election, where people of somewhat like minds are voting for a common candidate to represent their collective beliefs.
Below are the five best candidates worthy of being named the Player of Month for October 2010. A brief case for each guy is made and then it’s up to you to vote…

Dustin Brown – tied for team lead in goals (five) and power play goals (two)…also has two assists, for seven points total…finished with a plus-two rating…had team high 27 penalty minutes (includes questionable game misconduct call)
