I’ve been so desperate for hockey that I’ve been reduced to watching old programs on the NHL network. So I decided to cook my way through until the 15th of September and hope that training camp will begin. I comforted my self with a nice easy recipe that requires few ingredients and from start to […]

I would like to pay tribute to the forgotten Los Angeles Kings fan. You know who they are. They are the ones who stayed with you through the long season of ups and downs of what is now our beloved hockey team. The ones who gave up Dancing with the Stars, American Idol and Snooky’s […]

June 6, 2012

The definition of a coach is to Inspire, Motivate and Educate.  Darryl Sutter has done all 3 of these. He has lived and breathed hockey all of his life. Prior to the appearance of Sutter, the Kings were a great defensive team.  Then they were taught to balance their game.  The fact is that Sutter has prepared them […]

We just got back from a week in Sedona Arizona where there are at least 4 or 5 hockey fans. We couldn’t get the game on TV at the Resort where we were staying so we found a sports bar. There were 10 or 12 people waiting for the game to start. It was shown […]

L.A. Kings Get the Respect they Deserve

May 4, 2012

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.   We didn’t demand it. We didn’t whine. We earned it. The Kings played without regards to announcers and pundits who thought they were just going to show up and let the other team roughshod all over them. Well, that didn’t happen, did it? We played with our heads held high. No grandstanding, no bullshit, […]

Filling in for Tracykingslover is not an easy task. However here’s a brief observation about game 2. There have been quite a few statements from reporters, bloggers and officials regarding tonight’s game. First they had to dissect Saturday’s game. Today they are predicting, speculating and dare I say, announcing the winner of tonight’s game. All […]
