Los Angeles Kings

This post was originally written in August, 2014.There's a price to pay when you play hockey in Los Angeles. Sure, it's December, and it's 70 degrees outside. Sure, you can get around town with ease and nobody knows your name.It's that nobody knows your name part. On one hand, you come and go as you please. On the other hand, your skills are constantly overlooked, around your neighborhood, around the country.Already ignored, you also toil for a club that's advanced past the second round only once in its first 44 years of existence. Nobody knows your name might start to get a tad frustrating.Of course, a lot has changed for the Los Angeles Kings in the past three seasons. Anze Kopitar has become an A-lister. A character actor won the 2014 Conn Smythe. Jonathan Quick probably gets too much press.This kingdom come for the Kings might be a touch surreal for the many Cup-worthy athletes who passed through Hollywood in relative anonymity before 2012. But Mr. DeMille,...

Rumors

In Monday's edition of the Rumor Rundown, we detail developments on David Pastrnak, Matt Duchene and the rumors that Drew Doughty might be looking at options beyond the Los Angeles Kings. Drew Doughty Wants to Win Cups It's an easy thing to say that you want to win Stanley Cups. Everyone wants to win the Stanley Cup if you're a player in the NHL. But, to say so publicly while still in the midst of a long-term contract with your current club is not something many will take lightly, especially if the current team you're on isn't seemingly going in a positive direction. Drew Doughty, however, has never been shy about stirring the pot. He doesn't care what he says, or to whom he says it. That's just the Doughty way.Proving he's still got his finger on the "hot button" trigger, Doughty has publicly aired his intentions when it comes to the rest of his NHL career. The Hockey News is reporting Doughty has no qualms about leaving the Los Angeles Kings in his quest to win the big...

Los Angeles Kings

The 2017-18 NHL regular season is just 23 days away, meaning fantasy owners everywhere will be preparing to draft their teams within the next few weeks. Although the Los Angeles Kings do not offer any top ten fantasy players, they do have a number of very useful fantasy assets in their lineup.Let's take a look at my top five fantasy assets from the Kings lineup for the 2017-18 season: 1. Drew Doughty Yahoo! Pre-Rank: 51Drew Doughty is coming off a bit of a down season in terms of fantasy production, but a bounce back is expected with new head coach John Stevens holding the reins. While I don't expect Doughty to be the top ranked fantasy player from the Kings roster, he warrants being placed in the top spot due to the large gap between productive fantasy defensemen. In what was a tough year for the Kings all around last season, Doughty still produced 44 points, with 19 of them coming on the power play.He fired 181 shots on goal last season while providing 129 hits and...

Vancouver Canucks

This article was originally written in January, 2015.If you've been following the 2015 NFL Playoffs, you already know the NFC South champion Carolina Panthers are moving on to the Divisional round. A team that finished the regular season at 7-8-1, which advanced by virtue of defeating an Arizona Cardinals team with a third string quarterback. In the Stanley Cup Playoffs, it doesn't happen that often anymore that a sub .500 squad gets into the tournament but it has happened in the past.There once was a time when virtually every team had a shot at the Cup. Heck, back in the "Original Six" days, 80% of the league was getting in. Yet, when the NHL first began expanding, the futility of some playoff squads was nuts. Just how awful, you ask? Well, here's a not so fantastic four. Vancouver Canucks (1978-79 Playoff Busts) Finishing second in the Smythe Division, Vancouver posted a ledger of 25-42-13 (63 points). It was a particularly awful division, which saw the leading Chicago...
