Earl has a post that's far more interesting below
LA Kings (flub) @ Minnesota Wild (37-26-8, 6th in West)
5:00 PST, 1150 AM
Patrick O'Sullivan: 72 games, 19 G, 26 A, 20 PIM. 23 years old.
Trevor Lewis: 61 games, 8 G, 13 A, 33 PIM (in the AHL). 19 years old.
Pavol Demitra: 58 games, 16 G, 28 A, 20 PIM. 34 years old.
It's insane that Patty might outscore Pavol this season.* Minnesota fans, how has Demitra worked out for you?
*I know, Demitra has been hurt this season, but he's hurt every season.
Here's Wayne Simmonds, the surprise 2nd-round draft pick from last year:
The guy Simmonds pummeled? That's Robert Bortuzzo, a prospect for the Penguins. (Nice spear, asshole.) He's 6'4", 205. Wayne Simmonds, my new favorite player? Might be!
Marcel Goc has another amazing post up. Read it to find out about whom he said this:
He has a weak brain.
He'd be scarier if he didn't look like Franz Kafka.
Prediction: Kings win, 3-2. I think the Kings are like 7-1 when I predict them to lose, so I'm not going to mess with that. (I want a good draft pick.) Hat trick by O'Sullivan, who will have that same damn look on his face the whole time.
