We keep waiting for people to beg for mercy, complaining that their heads hurt from all the math. Instead, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive all summer long to our series of salary cap articles. And why not, if there was ever a period in NHL history where you really needed to understand the cap […]
During today’s conference calls with Dean Lombardi and Rob Blake, neither man shied away from the fact that some Kings fans – albeit, a small vocal group – may not like the hiring of the future Hall of Fame Player.
Despite a long list of credentials, including being the Kings’ all-time leader in games played, goals, […]
Nothing gets people excited like a little math on a Monday morning.
For about the past month or so we’ve been reviewing the Kings salary cap situation – which, as most of you know by now, is more complicated than the planning required for a Cirque du Soleil show.
As part of the new CBA agreed to […]
Here we go again. Salary Cap 101, week three is now in session.
As mentioned previously, you’re encouraged to take copious notes. Pop quizzes are likely early next week.

Welcome back to summer school. This is Salary Cap 101, week two.
Please take copious notes, there will be a pop quiz later this week.
We pick things up following the trade that went down over the weekend between the LA Kings and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Let’s begin with a few quick reminders – (a) when evaluating a […]
