More Than Minor Points: Trades, Schultz, and Shore

2014 Williams Kings NHL MayorsManor

WiJust a couple of quick notes related to some odds and ends worth mentioning…
– Regarding the increased trade chatter of late, pump the breaks when it comes to the Kings. As we mentioned in detail here, the Kings are in no hurry to make a deal. In fact, the deal they are looking for (yes, […]

How the Kings Can Best Use Nick Shore

Shore Nick Kings by Zampelli

Discussions of line combinations are a continuous topic in hockey circles, and even more so in Los Angeles of late, where Kings coach Darryl Sutter has often been channeling his inner-Terry Murray. Gone is the early 2012 era, a time period in which Sutter went with nearly the same line-up every night. More recently, largely […]

Puck Probability: Predictions for Maple Leafs at Kings

Phaneuf Maple Leafs

Once upon a time, the Kings and Maple Leafs waged what was arguably the best seven-game series in Stanley Cup Playoff history. Fast forwarding a little more than two decades later, today they are a pair of franchises heading in very different directions. Los Angeles is considered to have a roster full of players in […]

Puck Probability: Predictions for Jets at Kings, Jan. 10

Jets Kings Brown

Just below the marked hatred that once existed between the Kings and three of their other former Smythe Division rivals – Vancouver, Edmonton, and Calgary – there used to be somewhat of a rivalry with the Jets. At the very least, many memorable moments in Kings franchise history took place between the two clubs. With Rob […]

Jets Kings Regehr

For the second (and final) time this season, the Winnipeg Jets arrive in Los Angeles without a healthy Evander Kane.

Puck Probability: Predictions for Rangers at Kings, Jan. 8

Kings Rangers

It’s funny, after the Kings beat the New Jersey Devils for the Stanley Cup in 2012, there wasn’t much of a buzz for a rematch the next time they played (in fairness, that was partially due to their next encounter not coming for quite some time due to the NHL Lockout). More recently, the Kings […]

Five Things You May Not Know: Rangers at Kings Edition

Rangers-Nash-Rick

Some games simply don’t need much hype or explanation prior to puck drop. Thursday night’s Stanley Cup Final rematch is one such contest. Anytime you get teams from the two largest U.S. markets, there is the natural East Coast v West Coast flavor permeating the air. This one is a little extra special because of […]

Time for Change: Kings Lineup Suggestions

Sutter on Kings bench

‘Oh October, where have you gone,’ is likely something Darryl Sutter often wonders. Back in the opening month of the season his Kings had the hottest line in hockey, with the trio of Tanner Pearson-Jeff Carter-Tyler Toffoli racking up 35 points in the first 11 games. Overall, the team has been a bit of a mystery most nights, […]
