Yeah but the Ducks were pathetic two games ago and the Kings lost, so...
Yea ducks and kings were both pathetic in that game. It was a struggle to watch.
Sign Athanasiou the Kings have no one with his blazing speed and scoring touch
This was the game I was expecting to see a couple nights ago. Between Gibson bobbling the puck and the atrocious Ducks team defence, we could have easily seen LA get 8 or 9 last night. Like RJ said, 3 of 4 points in any 2 game series is fine by me.
Just like I’m happy with a slight overpay if it’s necessary to keep Iafallo, a slight overpay to keep AA in the middle 6 for a couple more years is fine by me.
I was worried about the -45 year he had and not being capable of playing defensively, but he has not been a liability on the other side of the puck.
He backchecks and is ok on the boards as well....makes some good hits, too.
He also makes good passes like on his goal last night. The 2 on 1 with Carter, slipped a great pass to him, through 2 Ducks. Carter got a decent shot off, but was too close in,
but AA cut through to the net fast and got the rebound. He has excellent instincts. Actually, Kempe has blazing speed and now has a scoring touch.
I hope they sign AA. I think he should get more PP time too...and be on the first 3 on 3 unit in OT. Put him, Kempe and Doughty out there.
AA missed a lot of games due to covid...and the 6 goals in 17 games, is a 28 goal / 82 game season.
Prior to last night, the Ducks had played 8 straight 1 goal games.
Bully for them.
For a time I thought LA brought young Kempe over too soon from Sweden? I think the one-timer from great Kopi-Star passes has everything to do with it!The Kings should have paired them up years ago!
They are building too
What I would love to see...is to get Grundstrom back to where he was a few weeks ago - and that was with JAD and Moore. Whoever plays with : Lizotte / Amadio / Luff / Wagner does not do well. Period. Or any 2 of those together. All of them should / will be gone by next year, as the Kings have way more talent about to push through; or acquire a good 3rd / 4th line player that is better than those.
Once JAD comes back, it should be Grundstrom and Moore playing together again. They were the best bottom 6 line I have seen on the Kings in years. The perfect bottom 6 would be like this, but more toughness, but that's not available.
I would like to see Kempe Andersson Grundstrom, honestly. 3 Swedes. You would see a much better Andersson; or at least his best.
Would rather overpay for AA than Iafallo...only if the terms were short, <= 3 years.
All he needed is a fight with his teammate and he'll have a gordie howe bat-shit
I hear Anthony DeAngelo is available
