A quick reminder… for each Los Angeles Kings game, TRH Baby will take on a panel of Blogger Experts by selecting which team will win. We’ll keep track of their win-loss record and at the end of the regular season we’ll see just who the hockey expert is. Ok.. let’s check the Leaderboard!!!

TRH BABY: 24-7
BLOGGERS: 16-15

Alright, it looks like we have a great matchup as the TRH Baby has selected the LA Kings and Vlogger Steve Dangle has selected the Toronto Maple Leafs? For real? Ok, I guess he has!

Well, tune in at 4:00 pm on Fox Sports West to see if they are right!

SOME ACTUAL BLOGGING

When Jon Bernier was drafted 11th overall in 2006 by Dean Lombardi, it was the first step in Lombardi’s plan to re-build the LA Kings from the “back-out.” And Bernier was to be what this team had never seen before… a home-grown franchise goalie. And then a funny thing happened.

Jon Quick.

And slowly, the once seemingly solid “Franchise Goaltender” tag for Jon Bernier started to show some wear and tear around Los Angeles.

It’s really sad what has become of Jon Bernier in Toronto. It’s easy (really easy, actually) for all of us to make jokes about where Bernier is now and how his trade to Toronto basically paved the way for Marian Gaborik and a 2nd Stanley Cup to make its way to Los Angeles. Sure, he didn’t play in a game after March 31st during that magical 2012 run… but his name will forever be attached with the first bit of actual history this team has ever achieved. And we should give him a pass for that.
