MayorsManor (lockout) Radio with LA Kings dman Drew Doughty

Drew Doughty Kings practice 2012 MayorsManor

Today’s show goes in so many different directions, it’s hard to even know where to start.

The 2011-12 LA Kings were a tight-knit group of guys, no doubt. However, they were also an eclectic mix of personalities. You had the grizzled vet in Willie Mitchell, the new guy in Mike Richards, the ultra-reserved goalie in Jonathan Quick and so on.

There was also Drew Doughty.

He’s given us so many great quotes over the last few seasons it would be hard to narrow things down to a best-of type list – although declaring his hatred for the Canucks as ‘definitely a 10′ and saying ‘We hate every single guy on that team!’ was certainly some good stuff.

Today, he’s back. Doughty joins on the MayorsManor show for an absolutely incredible journey. He sells out several of his teammates, reveals something GM Dean Lombardi talked to him about at draft time in 2008, professes his love for all things London…and, of course, weighs in on the recent Toronto Blue Jays managerial change.

Here’s a few other topics we’ll touch on…

– Criticism of his off-season conditioning

– Training with the OHL’s London Knights

– Wayne Simmonds

– Is he thinking about signing a deal to play in Europe if the lockout continues?

– Trading in Trevor Lewis for a new best friend

– Cowboy hats

– When he might be coming back to LA

Brad Doty

– Seeing his name on the Stanley Cup

– What he wants to do to Matt Greene and why

– Which Kings player isn’t isn’t as smart as he thinks he is

– Why Kings fans love Bobby Ryan

– LA Kings trivia

– His current hatred level for the Canucks…and the Coyotes

– Twitter questions from fans (his fear of birds, fighting Joe Thornton and more)

– He answers Colin Fraser’s question about spooning with Lewis

– And if that’s not enough, Quick interrupts the show with a question of his own for Doughty!

As always, the Kings 2008 first round draft pick really brought his A-game today. You probably want to listen a few times…
