  1. Yes, I know the look of which you speak. Apparently the weather is not good over there in MI so you may have not have even been able to land and probably would have missed the game. That would have been the worst, not only getting the look and suffering the inevitable consequences, but then missing the game to boot. Anyway, the heavy snow gets the Wing fans off the hook for tonight but it has been pretty dismal all season long. Not good for a team with a brand new building.
  2. Watching a bit of Red Wings v Boston on MSNBC and man is it empty in the Detroit arena!
  3. It goes to show just how good these guys are to even be considered NHL caliber athletes. It also shows you how important it is to SHOW UP on a nightly basis. We'll see if they can keep up this pace for an entire season (doubt it) but they have certainly done themselves proud up til now.
  4. I don't recall saying the Ducks were better than the Kings. I don't even think I mentioned the Ducks. Maybe there was another wataduk on the grassy knoll. I DID say that the Kings are quite possibly a paper tiger and this upcoming road trip might be a better indicator of just where they stand in the Pacific.
  5. As much as I hate to admit Milbury is ever correct about anything, he is more or less correct on this one. Kings got Buff when they were winless. SJ when they were winless. Mont. with only 1 win and on the 2nd game of a back to back. NYI who are average at best. Quality win vs Phil and an OT loss to CGY. All in all, too early to plan the parade but not a bad start although it might be slightly skewed by some weak opponents. This upcoming road trip should give a better indicator about what the silver and black is all about. My guess is that they return with 4 pts out of the 6 games.
  6. Ok, thanks. Guess I didn't look hard enough in the threads. Was looking forward to seeing him tonight on National TV.
  7. They are going to be a tough match-up for pretty much everybody.
  8. I could so see CP10 trying this.
  9. That's 2 for the Heel.....or Eel.
  10. The Real Heel - James Neal.
  11. Just watched the pre-game from Vegas........Goosebumps. Wow! No Shea Theodore in the player introductions. Guessing he is starting the year in the AHL?
  12. At the moment, Vegas sits alone in 1st place in the Pacific. Of course, the Kings will join them in about 5 minutes but just thought I'd toss that out there.
  13. Yeah, that's disappointing. One of these days, hopefully, there will be a legitimate star player from Cali. It looked promising for a while with the, so called, Gretzky kids coming along and looking like some were going to really bust through and make a name for So Cal hockey. That kind of fizzled. So who would the best or most successful player from here be then? Technically, Zucker of the Wild was born in Calif but he played most of his minor hockey in Las Vegas. Then of course you have Brooks Orpik, but same story as he didn't live here all that long.
  14. Dang. So Cal kids just can't seem to catch a break. How many is that now that drafted, got a snip and then cast off? Kings had a guy in camp (Shane Harper) who played on that Calif Wave team that won Nationals about 10 years ago. He played in the preseason game Vs The Ducks last week. Pretty sure he got cut. I believe he was the last of the 6-7 Wave players that got drafted or were invited to tryouts, to have a shot in the NHL.
  15. If you want someone to be your best friend, buy a dog....... but I wouldn't ever shell out $100 for a ticket to watch my dog play hockey.
  16. Seriously. The L A Kings organization not only welcomed Rob Blake back onto the team as a player but have now made him the GM. Nobody was more despised by King fans for quite a few years than was Rob Blake.
  17. Sitting here trying to soak it all in and the 1 image that keeps coming to mind is the flip pass-goal in game 6 OT @ Phoenix.
  18. That is incredible. Both going in at the same time. Hopefully this helps to get Paul back into the Duck's organization where he belongs. Congrats to both. Wow, misty here.
  19. Well, Emerson can't say that he is not getting an opportunity in Van. He is playing on a line with the Sedin Twins. If he can't gather points playing with those guys, he'd better enroll in plumbing school. Follow up: He looks eerily familiar. He jumps into holes and gets to the net at the right time......the puck arrives on his stick .......and denied.
  20. 2 goals for Emerson last night. Rooting for the guy.
  21. Traded to Vancouver. Glad for the kid. NY was not a good fit and hopefully he gets the chance to develop in a system that is not in contention for a Stanley Cup.
  22. We kinda do but they are currently our 3rd line. Pretty sad when our 3rd line is outplaying and outscoring our supposed 2nd line. I recently jokingly made a crack about Silfverberg having blackmail pictures of BB otherwise why in the world would Bruce continue to give this guy top minutes. It's time to shake things up, Brucie.
