  1. This is a really nice interview. Good job. I could not agree more strongly about the impact of losing Penner. Simply put, he fit the team. Hard to see the philosophy changing or being indicated by whatever trade occurs though. More likely a reflection of what is available and at what price, no? Also, I’m betting the Kings deals that finally occur are ones that haven’t been publicly discussed. Dean seems pretty discreet. That said, Id be delighted to pick up Gagne. We need help on the back end, but we have looked slow against the best teams, and we’ve got to address that to get by Anaheim or Chicago in the playoffs. Hopefully some of that is the schedule.

    • Penner and Gagne produced less than 20 goals combined throughout their entire time with LA, and Penner was even quoted on being dissatisfied playing in LA. Penner is not the reason were struggling. We were winning a crap load of games earlier this season, i think its just that scoring mentality thats missing. When you have it, its easy, when you dont, its near impossible

      • What I believe I said was that Penner created space and opportunity for his linemates to score goals. Never was waxing on about his numbers. That point is a true statement and the Kings have yet to address his absence with an adequate replacement on the left side.

        As for your other point, pretty sure I’ve spoken to him on a more consistent basis than nearly every other reporter in SoCal since the day he was traded to LA. And I don’t ever recall him complaining about his time in LA. In fact, he took LESS money to return to the Kings for the 2012-2013 season. Thus, I’m not sure what quotes you’re referring to. But, I’d like to see them.

  2. JAY FLATS says:

    Very excited to see what moves Dean makes! I have faith in his abilities…look what he has done i his tenure in Los Angeles so far.

  3. Nice job Mayor. Great point on balancing the lines!

  4. i agree with your insights to the team. and what you said about Quick. Would be cool to get a guy like Vanek on a line with Kopitar. Sucks to see Cliffy go, but we have allot of players like him in nolan, king, lewis. we need some bottom six scoring and pp scoring to spark our offense and get 4 lines going. If there’s another D man or a Left winger out there I just hope DL is on the phone with that team as much as he’s on the phone with the Oils because Gagner is not the simple answer. I think DL is smart enough to know that.
