POLL: Who should the LA Kings honor next season?

It’s been confirmed to MayorsManor that the LA Kings will keep the same jersey rotation for next year, including the purple (Forum blue) and gold version for three Legends Nights. As of now, the names haven’t been finalized. However, a list of possible candidates is being pulled together. So, let’s take a break from the playoff races for a moment and see what you guys think…

Over the course of 45 years, a lot of names have come through the organization. In an attempt to make things a little easier, we’ll break this up into three eras. First up, we’ll give you a list of pre-Gretzky stars (see below). In the next poll, we’ll look at the 1988-2000 era (i.e. Kelly Hrudey, Marty McSorley, etc). Then, later in the week, we’ll look at the Staples Center years (i.e. Ziggy Palffy, Ian Laperriere, etc.).

Most of the names on the list are obvious – such as Dave Taylor, who played more games in a Kings uniform (1,111) than any other player and has his number retired by the team. Yet, if you’re not as familiar with some of the guys from the very early years, Brian Kilrea scored the very first goal in LA Kings history (something he talked about here). And Eddie Joyal was probably the first superstar hockey player in LA (discussed here).

Please select three people you think the Kings should honor next season:

Poll closes Wednesday at 8pm PST.
