Prior to tonight’s Edmonton Oilers vs LA Kings game, I once again joined Jason Strudwick on TSN Radio to preview the Pacific Division match-up and break down several key issues. We talked about Jeff Carter, Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar, Daniel Carcillo, Kyle Clifford, Matt Frattin, Darryl Sutter, trade rumors and much more. Give it a listen and [...]
Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to read the article put up over the weekend predicting what moves the Kings would be making to get down to the maximum roster size of 23 players. Perhaps the most common question asked this week is how/why Tyler Toffoli didn’t make the final list.
It’s explained in that [...]
Building on this article, where we predicted who will be part of the Kings opening night roster, which defenseman do you think will be cut?

After all the hand-wringing and head-scratching that went on this summer over the Kings roster, it’s all about to become crystal clear in the next 48 hours. Some people will like the results, others won’t. Regardless, there are several tough choices ahead for GM Dean Lombardi, coach Darryl Sutter and their key lieutenants.

Last season was anything but what Alec Martinez had hoped for. In June of 2012 he was an integral piece of the Kings Stanley Cup winning team. By the time the calendar flipped to 2013 he had undergone major facial surgery following an on-ice accident in Finland and was about to suffer another injury soon [...]
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 [...]
We know you’ve been patiently waiting all week for the next installment from the annual KingsCast summer forum – aka the Kings Media Roundtable. So, here we go with episode four…
Along with a handful of other people who cover the team, we recently spent time debating key issues currently surrounding LA’s hockey team. In the initial video [...]
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.
