  1. Again a tie between the fantastic goalie and a kid with great skill but I had to go with Jordan Weal for his sick 2nd period goal from behind the goal line!

    I thought Andreoff was great in the first game but three trips to the penalty box kinda rubbed some of the warm fuzzies off for me.

  2. Bryson Otanjah says

    Had to give it to Bartosak. Must be intimidating for a rookie goalie to put on the sweater for a club thats known for goaltending. He handled himself well. Hopefully he can stay healthy and just play up to his potential, whether that is just ECHL or beyond.

  3. Bartosak gets the nod over Shore by a hair. Both were stellar. Both won the game on the PK.

  4. Agree with Token that Bartosak and Shore were both good. Andreoff is going to be a very effective bottom six forward.

    The Kings now have many interesting prospects on defense. Deslauries, Miller and Leslie all have considerable talent. Forbort could be a top four guy but should be an NHL’er eventually, in any case. Roach and Ebert have a chance to make it as well. This a far cry from when DL took over with a bare cupboard on defense. DD and Voynov will be joined by one or more of these guys sooner or later.

    Weal and especially Kozun probably have a professional future somewhere but not likely with the Kings. Neither will be able to crack the top six in L.A. and there are too many other options available to the team in the bottom six where their size will factor against them.

    The organization is currently deeper than it’s ever been. Still waiting for that big, top-six power forward and somebody is going to have to start scoring more on the third line. Stoll and Lewis are good defensively and great penalty killers (think Draper-Maltby) but neither is a natural scorer or set-up man. If those two could be relegated to the fourth line and there was a third line that could score ( think Vey, Pearson, Toffoli, Shore, Kitsyn, etc.)-WOW what a team this would be!!!
