On not “pulling guys out of that room”

I’ll have a story up on LAKings.com later this week about the Kings’ aversion to trading from its core and the team’s thrust heading into the post-deadline portion of the season, but prior to then, I’ll share a few of the quotes I received from players I spoke with about how they feel about the trade deadline. “I don’t even know one trade that happened today,” Drew Doughty said after […]

March 2 practice quotes: Darryl Sutter

On the Kings’ play of late: Last night wasn’t our best game, but nobody has every game a good game. [Reporter: Winnipeg’s much better than people give them credit for.] Winnipeg?

Waking up with the Kings: March 2

There wasn’t much at all to like about the Kings’ performance on Sunday in their 5-2 defeat to a Winnipeg Jets team that isn’t only playoff bound, but could make some noise in the postseason if their goaltending holds up by virtue of a big and heavy offensive group and a deep and versatile defensive corps. Enough of Winnipeg; Los Angeles was sloppy. And Darryl Sutter was right. It wasn’t […]

Good morning, Edmonton, and good morning, Insiders.
