LA Kings Media Roundtable Part 4 – talking defense and division

We know you’ve been patiently waiting all week for the next installment from the annual KingsCast summer forum – aka the Kings Media Roundtable.  So, here we go with episode four…

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 argued about free agency, Dustin Brown’s 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.

Part three looked at the challenges of creating offense from the left side and the impact of trading Jonathan Bernier, which brought Matt Frattin to LA.  Watch the discussion here.

Now, in part four, we talk defense – namely the future of Alec Martinez, will Willie Mitchell return and is Jake Muzzin an important player for the Kings moving forward?  After answering all the questions on the blueline, we then touch on the revamped seven-team Pacific Division.

The next segment from this year’s Roundtable discussion is expected be posted early next week.

    Trade Williams and you will see a big difference come playoff time. Look we don’t need Iginla. Brown needs to step up. Everytime Brown takes initiative the game comes to Kopitar. Brown can be a great offensive player but he over thinks the game sometimes.
