I'd imagine playing in a front of a goaltender who can handle the puck is a huge boost for Willie, since teams that make him engage in foot races are the ones who exploit his weakness..

So Edler would be the # 5 guy then ???

Edler , Hamhuis and Mitchell play the left side exclusively........and so does Ballard.

How's this Stanley Cup final rank? as one of the most boringest finals ever.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Yep - no drama at all. At least it will be over soon.

I'm hoping that the Kings lose G4. Boring play or not, I love to see the Cup presented - and NBC isn't carrying game 4.

... sorry buddy but I was worried my asshole reputation was slipping!

I'm actually laughing out loud right now, and it's a very VERY evil laugh. :D

Figures , I start praising the play of Willie and he comes up with his worst game of the play-offs. -3 and a bad penalty. Shit

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Wow. I knew that the US didn't really care about hockey... but they didn't carry the possible series-winning game? Un-flipping-believable.

Is it any wonder that US audience doesn't care? Even if they start watching and get into it - they can't see the whole series without hunting down another channel that they may or may not have. Its not like there is anything on in the summer but reruns. :crazy:
