“I told (Anze) Kopitar ‘You aren’t touching the puck enough. I don’t like your breakout.’ I think Kopitar can make magic with the puck” – Marcel Dionne on MayorsManor in 2009.
Getting a chance to speak with a legend is always an honor. However, to chat with somebody as open as Dionne, it’s […]

It’s also been a while since there’s been any new Rob Blake news around these parts…again, also popular during the regular season.

Rob Blake : The Interview

For many sports fans, there’s a ‘you’re with me or against me’ type attitude. So, when Rob Blake resigned the captaincy of the Kings in September 2000 it pretty much sealed his fate with many of the team’s loyal supporters. When he was traded to the Colorado Avalanche the following spring, he became public enemy number […]

He’s strayed from Los Angeles a few times, yet his heart always belonged to the Kings. Today marks another milestone in […]
