At the Dallas Stars’ morning skate today we had a chance to chat with two defensemen at opposite ends of their familiarity with the LA Kings. Alex Goligoski has seen them just 10 times over his six years in the NHL, with half of that spent in Pittsburgh. Trevor Daley, on the other hand, was drafted by [...]
First batch of quotes from the Dallas Stars morning skate – here’s Eric Nystrom….
- On working out with some of the Kings during the lockout compared to now playing against them: “I’ve been out here the past few summers, so I’ve got to know these guys pretty well. But, when you get out there it doesn’t matter. It’s [...]
Late yesterday we posted some thoughts from Luc Robitaille via the Marek and Wyshynski show on Fan 590 in Toronto. In the first article he talked about ‘Gretzky era’ Kings fans compared to today and explained why LA isn’t a basketball town, as some people think.

However, there once was a time when a [...]
At first glance, you might wonder why a guy who played for the New York Islanders, LA Kings and San Jose Sharks was asked to help preview a game vs. the Calgary Flames. But after listening, you’ll understand.
