Kings Of the Podcast Ep. 16.2 with Roman Vopat

With the St. Louis Blues arriving in Los Angeles for a pre-Christmas game vs. the Kings, one of three memories come to mind:

(A) 2012 – Ken Hitchcock craziness during the playoff sweep at Staples Center

(B) 1998 – the Meltdown on Manchester

(c) 1996 – Wayne Gretzky is traded to St. Louis

And for this Kings of the Podcast episode we’ll focus on the latter, as we’re joined by the central figure coming to LA in the aforementioned Kings-Blues deal, forward Roman Vopat.

Here’s a short list of just a few items discussed during the show:

– Vopat on the trade, the Flyers, his disdain for the game, etc.
– A preview of the Kings-Blues at Staples Center
– Personal memories of Gretzky’s final roadtrip with the Kings
– Jersey Numerology and some weird notes on No. 12
– Several hockey stories you’ll want to share with your friends!
