    We suck but the effort is better than last year and I think we would be a lot better with decent goaltending.

    well obviously not you because you post here all the time, it's just like bankerguy and that DL44 guy show up, albeit bankerguy wasn't trying to stir it up the same way DL44 did

    it's just like, it's never red wings or avs or stars fans that show up here outside of the playoffs or something, it's always leafs, flames or canucks fans yknow.. like congrats you won a regular season game against a horrible team..... why are you here piling on? it was ridiculous a season or two back when leafs fans showed up en masse

    I agree with the effort and the goaltending as a whole so far this year, however last night I thought the team wasted a good game by Quick. Those PP goals were all failed coverage and cross ice/ grad A scoring chances. Plus the non PP goal was a clear cut break away with zero pressure on the Canuck.

    Remember that time Kings’ fans crapped all over Vancouver after one meaningless regular season win?

    Oh wait that was game one in the 2012 playoffs en route to a Stanley Cup. My mistake.

    Canuck fans had been infiltrating Staples Center all season. Canuck fans on hfboards with avatars saying, "Deal With It!" all season long.

    Following Game 3 and the Kings going up 3-0 in the series, a Vancouver fan in attendance at Staples Center was yelling, "It takes four guys!". I looked at my kids and asked them, "What's four minus three?". They yelled, "ONE!!" at the guy.

    Getting over the canucks in 2012 was a huge accomplishment. First of many awesome things that spring!

    The "Deal With It" avatars were 2011, not 2012

    They were around in 11-12 because some people don't change avatars until the next playoff push. 2012 playoff avatar theme was the Avengers.

    Guilty as charged. And I was running Dwight King until I changed to Kempe that Spring.

    The Canucks shouldn’t have lost to a team like that in the first round

    The best thing about it was that elimination completely broke the Canucks, and they’ve been irrelevant ever since.

    :laugh:

    But don’t give yourselves too much credit. Boston did all the work the previous summer, the Canucks were already broken and fragile by the time they played the Kings in 2012.

    I just got rid of my Adrian Kempe "Not NHL Ready?" avatar with flashes of Kopitar drinking Pepto from 2016-2017. Traded it for this beautiful Doug Houda card (it's a looong story). Related: does anyone have a picture of Houda from his Kings stint?

    And the jury is still out on Kempe hahaha. . . .

    They did win over 50 games and capture the Presidents’ Trophy, and were the 5th highest scoring team and allowed the 4th least amount of goals. I’m sure that Game 7 loss in 2011 was demoralizing, but they were heavily favored over the 8th place Kings in 2012.

    they made the playoffs 2 of the next 3 years, they sucked after because management fired Gillis and Benning is stupid.

    Gillis reportedly had many trades in place at the 2014 deadline to rebuild, but ownership nixed them and fired him when the team missed the playoffs.

    I was at game three, too. Place was electric after that Brown on Sedin hit. I’ll never forget that.

    How cute, they're trying hard to be like the Carolina Hurricanes.


    What a fickle bunch.

    If you ever need further proof that what Drew Doughty does is effective, let it be known an actual organization is printing Tshirts from a misrepresented quote to pump everyone up.

    Me, however, I much prefer this one from Calgary.
