WILL JEFF CARTER OUTSCORE ANSON CARTER?!?

CARTERGEDDON!!!

I wouldn’t say that the LA Kings are feeling pretty solid about their playoff hopes after acquiring Jeff Carter for Jack Johnson… but I saw this billboard on the way into work this morning.

Sure, beating a injured Chicago Blackhawks team 4-0 is one thing. Now let’s see how the LA Kings v3.0 do against a really awesome Nashville Predators team that got even awesome-er at the Trade Deadline. And against a Minnesota Wild team… well… that sucks. But they did beat the Sharks Sunday night.
