We’ll have a bunch of comments from the Kings players and GM Dean Lombardi up on the site throughout the day today – yet, first, we need to hear from you.

Yet, lets take a look at some stats before you vote:

poll MayorsManor LA Kings hockey

As we first reported, Kyle Clifford did not practice with the Kings this afternoon. Then, following the team’s optional on-ice session, coach Darryl Sutter declared Clifford out of the line-up for game two tomorrow night vs. the Canucks – all stemming from the hit he suffered from Byron Bitz (video here).

In tyring to select three worthy candidates to honor during next season’s LA Kings Legends Nights, you have to look back over their entire 45-year history. In doing so, it’s almost impossible to compare players from the ’70s with current stars. So, we’ve tried to make things easier by grouping players into three eras – [...]
