KINGS RUMORS & GOSSIP

How close are the LA Kings to the “dynasty” label?

When the Los Angeles Kings hoisted the Cup at the end of 2013-14, the conversation regarding dynasties heated up. The general consensus was that the Kings were not a dynasty – yet. Though winning two Cups in three years in a ridiculous accomplishment, it’s not quite worthy of the dynasty label. Even if you make the argument that the Kings won two back-to-back full regular season...

Kings fan Al Michaels meets the Stanley Cup

It’s not too often that fans are made aware of broadcasters and their fan allegiances.  One of those rare exceptions is Al Michaels and the Los Angeles Kings.  Although his most famous call (and the most famous call in sports history) comes from the hockey world, Michaels does not call NHL games for NBC as that’s Doc Emrick’s turf.  So, he’s free to to cheer on his beloved...

Sharks, Pens & Ducks highlight list of Kings’ 5 most expensive games

The Los Angeles Kings enter the 2014-15 NHL season after winning their second Stanley Cup in the past three seasons last June. With so much recent success on the ice, the Kings will also have secondary market prices rise considerably at the Staples Center in comparison to last season.

Notebook: Kings add player to roster, while Ducks still finalize theirs

I think it's safe to say Jeff Carter will make the team. Carter scored a hat trick in the Kings' 4-2 preseason win over the Ducks, Sunday night at the Honda Center, and it looks as though the line with him and the kids, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson, is still clicking as much as it did in the postseason.  It wasn't too hard, he said, it was Toffoli and Pearson who...

Jeff Carter Notches Hat Trick In Preseason Game Against Ducks (Video)

It was the Jeff Carter show Sunday night in the Los Angeles Kings’ preseason match against the Anaheim Ducks. Carter scored three of the Kings’ four goals to earn himself a hat trick. Kings’ defenseman Robyn Regehr opened up the scoring, but Carter plastered his name all over the score sheet after that, scoring a goal in each period. Last season Carter, 29, had 27 regular...

Pacific Division Predictions

With the season fast approaching, I figure that now is a good time to start my pre-season predictions.  I will begin today in the Pacific Division. 1. Los Angeles Kings - The Kings are the most talented of the teams in this division.  Should they fail to win the division it is likely due to a Stanley Cup hangover.  They may not be as fresh as any other team having had a shorter...

Kings to take net management one game at a time

Questions about goalies and playing time often prompt an amusing baseball reference or two from Kings Coach Darryl Sutter, letting out his inner manager for a minute. Not this time. Sutter, who once declared there would be "no pitching rotation" involving his top two goalies, instead traveled down memory lane when asked about the handling of his No. 1 goalie, Jonathan...

Another Cup On Marian Gaborik’s Mind

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo, Gaborik made $7.5 million each of the past five seasons. But no one makes that much in L.A. – defenseman Drew Doughty’s average salary is $7 million and center Anze Kopitar’s is $6.8 million – and the Kings also wanted to re-sign defenseman Matt Greene under the salary cap. Gaborik’s average salary will be $4.875 million. ...

Kings' Toffoli feels like a veteran after winning Stanley Cup

Tyler Toffoli said it with a serious look on his face. "We started slow and that was to be expected with a lot of young players in the lineup," the Los Angeles Kings' center said. Toffoli, all of 22 years, is awfully young himself. Younger than some of the guys he referred to when talking about Thursday's preseason game. He only seems like a veteran and he's...
