Just got home from my recent trip to Los Angeles. I spent a few days there, but i kept myself busy to say the least with major highlights being 2 kings games, a lakers game and a stop at Universal Studios Hollywood. The Kings shockingly sold out 19000+ both games I attended which really shocked me since they are at the bottom on the NHL. What shocked me more was the fact that I would say at least 17000 had Kings jerseys. Pretty passionate fans for a team that is OK at best.

With this though, I have thought of a formula for success with the Los Angles Kings and our New York Islanders. The Kings play an offense first style of play getting many chances and score lots of goals. With this they seem to forget about defense and just simply let in more than they score. Our Islanders on the other hand play defense first and at times we wonder as fans if they know how to shoot the puck at all. With the salary cap in mind I have found a set of players that would be an instant cup contender in the NHL.


1) Cammalleri 3.35 mill
2) Frolov 2.9 mill
3)Brown 1.175 mill
4) Kopitar .955 mill
5) O'Sullivan .850 mill
6) Armstrong 1.5 mill
7) Comrie 3.75 mill
8) DiPietro 4.5 mill
9) Silllenger 2.2 mill
10)Fedotanko 2.9 mill
11) Guerin 4.5 mill
12) Sim 1 mill
13)Visnovsky 1.84 mill
14) Okposo .875 mill
15) Campoli .600 mill
16) Bergeron 1.045 mill
17) Witt 2.8 mill
18) Martinek .700 mill
19) Sutton 3.00o mill
20) LaBarbera .825 mill

That adds up to about 41 million for the year... so it still leaves this fantasy team room to make a big dead line deal if they pleased... I believe this team would far pretty well with the Kings offense and the Islanders defense and goalie... Tell me what you think... comment the blog or email me at [email]zach@islesnation.com[/email]

Now I was away and looking at the box scores from both the Panthers and Avs game I saw a couple of things.... DP coming out ok, but might have been distracted with the whole pad gate business because of the few goals he let up in the 2nd period... I also saw a late come back led by Bill Guerin. As for the Avs game I noticed a huge shot advantage for the Avs and because DP got the number one star in the loss im assuming he stood on his head with those nice new white pads of his and single handedly got the Isles 1 big point.

Now we face off against the Oilers. Im expecting a game full of emotion because it seems that both teams have many players that played for the opposing team and I'm expecting lots of boo birds from the Oilers fans towards many Islander players. Lets hope for a big 2 points tonight so we can leap frog those rangers!

Well they did have a 72 hour blow-out sale and there were plenty of empty seats there. And also there was a good show up of Islanders fans at the Staples Center.

Edit: Well they did have a 72 hour blow-out sale and there were plenty of empty seats there. And also there was a good show up of Calgary fans at the Staples Center. Almost looked like the Flames fans outnumber the Kings fans.

As a kings fan who grew up on Long Island I loved reading this! That would be a sick lineup. Dont pay attention to the ducks fan. They wouldnt even have a team if it wasnt for the success of the kings.
