Kings Gameday: Stop Making Me Look Bad

Los Angeles Kings
(1-3, 5th in Pacific) vs Boston Bruins (1-2, 5th in Northeast)


I’ve figured out what is wrong with the Kings: they’re spiting me. Everything I’ve said going into a game, they’ve done the opposite. I say that Bernier is wonderful and I want to open a baked goods store with him, he lets in 4 goals. I say I don’t care about Rob Blake too much anymore, he goes out of his way to make me hate him by sucking. I say Brian Willsie sucks, he… well, he still sucks, so that doesn’t count. Last game, I said Marc Crawford needed to switch up the lines and put O’Sullivan, Calder, and Frolov together, he responds by breaking up our top line and putting Nagy with Kopitar. I also famously said this:

"I expect the Kings to finish higher than the Stars this year because I can’t see from where they are going to get their scoring. I mean, Niklas Hagman?"

What do the Kings do? They let Hagman pot 2 goals and give up 5 overall. Seriously, what the hell? I mean, I know I’ve called certain Kings derelicts and whelps and overall douche bags, but that doesn’t mean they should tank their season just to get back at me. We’re all in this together… right?

So, as mein Fuhrer Dave Lewis and the Los Angeles Kings look to get revenge against the Allied Forces Boston Bruins tonight in Los Angeles, I’m hereby declaring the Kings doomed. Personally, I think the Kings should send Bernier down immediately. Call up Cloutier and let him start tonight! They should also NOT put O’Sullivan, Handzus and Calder on the third line. And they definitely shouldn’t put Johnson with a defensive defenseman, even though he looked great last game. Put him with Modry, let Blake play with Stuart and have Dallman up there with Lubo. He’s rested, he’ll be ready to go. I also think both Brian Willsie and Brady Murray deserve to play tonight because they’ve looked wonderful. Finally, I think the Kings will lose… BIG.

How big a dick is Crawford if the guy who looks like Hitler is "the nice one?"

Prediction: Bruins over Kings, 9-1. Lone goal by Nelson Emerson. Crawford will get a contract extension and Lombardi will step down so Sam McMaster can reassume GM duties.

(God I hope this works.)

Don't blame yourself, man. Do the easy thing and blame London.

After watching both the Ducks and Kings tank it from G3 onward, I can't believe that teams are signing up to start in Prague next year.

Even with Bettman starting next season late (motto: I'll do anything for Crosby), it's still ridiculous as ever. Oh well. Once Bettman sees the aftereffects on a team he actually cares about, this Europe thing will probably end.

Well said Rudy, I wish that you were the coach!

P.S. Hilarious, I love the reserve psychology.

Hey asshole, because of you I have Bernier on my team - they better NOT send him down!

Okay, so your reverse psychology didn't work....maybe you should try blogging about the team the Kings will be playing against, instead of the Kings? Be a Sharks blogger for the day or something!

Hagman extends goal-scoring streak to two games, and is currently tied with Anze Kopitar in goals scored with five. Looks like Kopitar isn't so special after all.

Things aren't always as they seem at the beginning of a season.

Let's see, at the end of last season Hagman had 17 goals and 12 assists. Kopitar had 20 goals and 41 assists.

I'll keep my money on Kopitar, but feel free to put yours on Hagman. We'll see who's ahead at the end of this season.
