Dean Lombardi officially ushers in a new era in Los Angeles.
We knew this day would come. With the emergence of KFC, it was inevitable. And, as sad as it is parting ways with Simmer, I would be even more heartbroken about seeing Clifford wearing orange next season.
These videos are from Wednesday night’s game against the Blue Jackets, a game the Kings won. The team has figured out how to cater to their strengths; unfortunately, these strengths don’t always make for pretty hockey.
Lombardi and the organization feel that even though Kovalchuk didn’t come to L.A., they can count on players within the organization to fill the holes in the lineup to help fill the net. So far the strategy has been to throw it all against the wall to see what sticks.
Let’s remember, we are looking at the ultimate heist (or hoist?): the Stanley Cup. It’s going to take some sacrifice to pull off, but the reward will be something that live in movie, er, hockey lore forever.
