Wayne Gretzky in Winnipeg, final game with the LA Kings

For several years in the mid-90′s it seemed like the Kings were on a ‘Closing Down the Arena’ tour, as they made their final visits to old Chicago Stadium, Boston Garden, Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, the Capital Centre just outside Washington DC and several others.

Will Matt Frattin be the answer at left wing for Sutter and the Kings?

This coming November marks the twenty year anniversary of one of the most disputed trades in Dodger history.

According to GM Dean Lombardi, the trade is actually not a 100% done deal [...]

Dustin Penner leaves, Dan Carcillo joins LA Kings

A little sarcasm on this fine Tuesday… With the departure of Ron Hextall on Monday, Kings GM Dean Lombardi moved quickly to replace his Flyers quotient by adding left wing Daniel Carcillo on Tuesday.
[Happy now? Back to playing it straight for a few minutes.]
In Carcillo the Kings add a left wing (and a left shot) [...]
