Dark Horses of 2007-2008

Posted Saturday | Comments 3
Another season is upon us! Seems like only yesterday the Ducks were hoisting the Cup and I was licking my wounds as a Sens fan. But hope is renewed, as it is with the fans of all teams around the league, with the anticipation of a new season!. Tonight, I wanted to give you my thoughts on a couple of teams (one from each conference) that may be able to surprise a few peop...
Aside from finishing school and being a free-lance aspiring writer I work at my buddies liquor store part time for some extra cash. We have a "regular" he buys McCormick Vodka, half-pints, daily. And during this past NHL season, knowing we are Flyer fans in the store, he would always ask me and my co-workers "When they gonna bring up Gauthier?" He was so set on it, he thou...
Let's start off with an introduction. I haven't been on this site, and posting a blog in a while. So, the name's Johnathan. I'm a 16-year-old highschooler from Toronto, Canada. I've probably already lost credibility in saying that, haven't I? Well, how's this one - I'm writing this blog in the middle of night, my head pounding while eating a bad of Lays potato...
Buffalo (30-12-6) at Los Angeles (27-19-3) The Sabres and Kings met for the only time this season. Last time they met, Ryan Miller shutout Los Angeles in a 5-0 win. The Sabres almost made quite a comeback in their last game against Anaheim. Buffalo quickly fell behind 4-0 in the first period with Patrick Lalime in net. The Sabres came out in the second, narrowing the...
As I look back on this season, 2009/2010 can't be called anything but a success. I can't help but look at the Kings and think about the years of prosperity that are on the horizon for this franchise. Look around the NHL at a team like Vancouver (my hometown team) and I see a 2-3 year window for a winning season before the core gets too old. Both the Sedin duo and Luongo...
Dustin Brown, what a captain. He hits, he scores, he passes, this guy is the real deal. I can honestly say that I am thrilled that he is a member of the Los Angeles Kings. He is the best choice for captain on the team, even at his young age. He plays with grit, speed, strength, and scoring touch, but most of all he plays with heart. Every captain in the league needs t...
Zeus, a warrior, what more needs to be said? What a player. This is probably going to be a very one sided review as I have a lot of respect and admiration for what Michal brings to the Kings both on and off the ice. I think that we can attribute the success of the Kings to the veterans in the room. They have taught the younger guys what it takes to win. I look at O'Do...
As we sit here waiting for the Kovalchuk sweepstakes to end, the rumors continue to circulate the NHL. Once he is signed, the dominoes are expected to begin falling. Teams will be trading and signing free agents again, filling up the roster with any unused cap space. For now, General Managers are sitting still, waiting for someone to sign the Russian forward. How much i...

Thoughts on the Kings

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
So the Kings lost out on Kovalchuk (unless now they get back in it with this recent fiasco). But do they need to add someone of this significance to their roster? No. Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, Ryan Smyth, Wayne Simmonds, Jarrett Stoll and Justin Williams are all capable top six forwards, and signing Kovalchuk would have done nothing but hamstring the Kings a year fro...

[img]http://www.newyoungworld.com/images/Nhl_logo.jpg[/img] [b]Follow me on Twitter @AarifDeenReport please.[/b] Yesterday, the long awaited opening night of the new National Hockey League season finally got underway. Three great games involving six great teams. The Former Cup Champions and the very team they beat. Two of Canada’s biggest teams went head to head...
Anytime you lose to a close rival, you tend to feel sick afterwards. Last night, in front of a sold-out crowd at the Staples Center, the Ducks fell 2-1 to the Los Angeles Kings in the first game of the Freeway Series. The Ducks and Kings will go at it again tonight, this time at the Honda Center in Anaheim. The Ducks trailed 1-0 until very late in the third period, ...

Well, Matthew Barry posted two blogs tonight. The first was removed and then there was a second one where he announced his retirement from this website. That one has also been auspiciously removed. What's going on here? If they need a new Kings blogger...here I am. If Matthew Berry did quit, then I hope Terry Murray takes good advice and follows him out the door. A...
After a close-call win against the conference dwelling Hurricanes, the Maple Leafs dropped two hard fought games this weekend against two good teams, Buffalo & Vancouver, who for the most part, played a little better than Toronto did over the 60 minute span. Yes, both games had glaring errors. Neutral zone turnovers, horrible PK, a couple soft goals, HORRIBLE refer...
It was the kind of game Blackhawks fans knew they could win if Chicago could just break through with a goal before the start of the third period. Didn't happen. Jonathan Quick stopped all 38 shots by the Blackhawks and Trent Hunter and Jarret Stoll scored a dirty goal each en route to their 2-0 victory over Chicago last night. Los Angeles won their second straight an...
I wonder how worried Deanno is about losing his job if the Kings a)Lose in the first round, or b) don’t make the playoffs? I don’t know too much about Dean’s tenure in San Jose, but after listening to Craig Button a little while back, it seems as though Dean managed the Sharks the same way as he is currently managing the Kings by not making the right moves, let al...
Mike Richards you can say hasn't been the same player since his head injury this year, and not having great line mates most of the time (i.e. Penner) can't help either, but is there something more behind it? Is Los Angeles where good hockey players go to die? Some people have said there is less pressure playing in Los Angeles than let's say Philadelphia, New York or Boston...
The Blackhawks four game winning streak came to an end on Thursday night when they provided the Dallas Stars with an opportunity to rally late in the third period and skated away with a much needed two points by both teams. Chicago looks to regroup and get back on the winning track when they travel to Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon to face a recently offensively-impr...
The Los Angeles Kings did their very best to put the Red Wings to sleep early Friday night at the Joe Louis Arena. Instead, it was the hockey fans across the country who were dozing off and begging both teams to shoot the puck. Darren Helm answered the prayer of many by not letting this game continue into overtime, by outmuscling Drew Doughty for position in front of the n...
After putting in a grind-it-out effort against one of the league's top teams to down the New York Rangers 4-3 on Friday night, the Chicago Blackhawks will look to build off said effort when they host the Los Angeles Kings tonight at the United Center. It's hard to believe that the Blackhawks have only scored two goals in three games against LA this year, and not since ...
It's been a little surprising how many explanations of why the Canucks lost game 1 are tinged with just a little disrespect towards the LA Kings. A lot is said of what the Canucks DIDN'T do as opposed to what the Kings DID do. Well let me tell you one thing. The Kings had a far greater impact on game 1 than just that the Canucks didn't bring enough emotion and played ba...

Coyotes Dethrone Kings

Posted Wednesday | Comments 2
The Phoenix Coyotes took on the Los Angeles Kings last night at Jobing.com Arena in the second math up between the two teams this season. The Kings were coming off a victory over the Flames the night before. The first period was all Coyotes pretty much. It was clear that they took advantage of their two day rest while the Kings suffered from their back to back game. Th...
[i]Ryan Leong filling in for Cam Gore who is on assignment. Cam will be back for Game 4.[/i] Logan Couture is coming of age. Couture has been mentioned numerous times on this blog how important he is to this team and this game only punctuates how he is the unquestioned 'leader' now. Sure the Sharks still have Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau but even the fans are awa...
[i][b]June 21[/b][/i] Now, shifting over to the Los Angeles Kings, who I hope are resting and healing fast for the real upcoming 82-game season starting in October... The pending trade of backup, yet capable #1 goaltender Jonathan Bernier is obviously the most important next step for GM Dean Lombardi. With the Toronto Maple Leafs emerging as front runners as of ri...

How the Kings Climbed Back

Posted Tuesday | Comments 6
The Los Angeles Kings were down 3 games to 0, in the first round of the playoffs to the San Jose Sharks. Last night they managed to climb all the way back to even the series at 3 games apiece. [code]rnrn[/code]The question is how? What changed? [code]rnrn[/code]After the first three games the Sharks looked not only superior, but dominant. They won the first three games...
Game No. 14- CBJ @ LAK The Cali trip continues with the Los Angeles Kings in the Staples Center. The Jackets are fresh off a win against the Sharks on Tuesday night, while the Kings blanked the St. Louis Blues in Missouri. This is the first time these teams meet this year, and the Kings were filled with offseason changes after missing the playoffs. Robyn Regher reti...
On Thursday night, the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the Los Angeles Kings by a final score of 3-2. This improves the Jackets record to 4-10-0 on the season. The game was a very physical game, including two fights and eight total minors. Captain Nick Folingo dropped the gloves with Kyle Clifford. Gregory Campbell fought Andy Andreoff. Also, each team had 26 hits e...

What a matchup in Columbus tonight. This evening, the Jackets host the Los Angeles Kings at Nationwide Arena. The Kings are in the midst of a four-game winning streak, and are starting a long-term road trip. Columbus has picked up points in two straight games, and are looking to make it three straight. This is the final meeting between these teams this year, until next...

CBJ Post-Game- No. 29

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Oh boy, that was tough to watch. The Los Angeles Kings extended their streak to five games in an 3-2 overtime victory against Columbus. The Kings got goals by Christian Ehrhoff, Jeff Carter, and Alec Martinez. They also got helpers by Alec Martinez, Milan Lucic, Nick Shore, and Dustin Brown (my player to watch). Jonathan Quick stopped 21 of 33 Jacket shots for a 0....

The Columbus Blue Jackets were defeated by the Los Angeles Kings by the final score of 3-2 in overtime. The comeback Kings got their goal from in the second period new captain Anze Kopitar; his second goal of the season was assisted by veteran defenseman Tom Gilbert and young winger Tyler Toffoli. The game tying goal was scored by reigning Norris Trophy winner Drew Dou...
The Instigator |Episode 28 Doughty: Criticism to Boost Your Ego This week Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty set the hockey world a buzz with this comments prior to a game in Calgary. He praised Mark Giordano, but criticized Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson on their defensive capabilities. He then took aim at Matthew Tkachuk of the Calgary Flames. He claimed that...

A Rough Draft of the Draft

Posted Thursday | Comments 3
This is a team breakdown for what strategy I'd take as every team. I'm going to skip over the Devils and the Rangers at 1 and 2 since it's fairly obvious the Devils will take Hughes and the Rangers Kakko. I'm also going no farther than 16 because after that, the possibilities are endless and these combine interviews and scouts could have come up with anything. Chi...
