It’s time for cut three from the annual KingsCast summer forum – aka the Kings Media Roundtable. Along with a handful of other people who cover the team, we recently spent time debating key issues currently surrounding LA’s hockey team.
In the initial video we focused on free agency, Dustin Brown’s upcoming contract and what to do with Tyler Toffoli. If you missed it, you can click here to view it now.
Part two focused exclusively on Anze Kopitar’s past, present and future. Lots of opinions were flying around. You’ll definitely want to click here if you missed it.
Now, in part three below, the primary topics are the challenges of creating offense from the left side and the impact of the recent Jonathan Bernier trade, which brought Matt Frattin to LA.
Immediately following the Bernier-Frattin deal, GM Dean Lombardi had a lot to say about the versatile 25-year old forward, such as:
“I’ve kind of been impressed with him since his career at North Dakota…We had a very good book on him…(and) this was a guy that I actually tried to trade for two years ago when he was just coming out of school…He shows up in scoring areas. He’s got that knack of being in the right place. He’s got a great release.”
