Kings of the Roundtable 2018, Episode 5 – Goaltending, Defense, and Trades

Fresh on the heels of Episode 4’s Prospect Party, we’re back with another edition of Kings of the Roundtable.

As requested by legions of hockey fans, MayorsManor and The Fourth Period partnered to bring you an in-depth look at the Los Angeles Kings, both on and off the ice. Along with Dennis Bernstein, Senior Writer at The Fourth Period, this year’s panel also includes Brian Slagel (Metal Blade Records CEO), Earl Skakel (comic, actor, and host of the Inappropriate Earl podcast), and Jesse Cohen (host of All The Kings Men podcast).

Episode 5 starts out in the crease – where we talk goaltenders Jonathan Quick, Jack Campbell, and Peter Budaj – before delving into topics like which player has the most at stake this season, team defense, possible trades to improve the club, and a few more prospect nuggets.

Are you ready? Here you go…

Episode 6 is coming soon, where we tackle questions received from fans on Twitter. Until then, be sure to check out the link below for some previous roundtable action.
