And you thought the Los Angeles Kings had a lot in common with the Philadelphia Flyers! Simon Gagne’s Reign of Terror is over and he’s back in the lineup on the 1st line, kicking Dustin Penner back to the 3rd line where Coach Murray thinks he plays better. I just wish there was some way to see exactly what the Los Angeles Kings gave up for Dustin Penner and his 7 points in 28 regular season games. 

Sup, I’m Colten.

Colten Tuebert should be making his NHL debut Thursday night against the team that traded him to Edmonton. Why do I get the feeling that he’s going to score 5 goals while Dustin Penner trips over his skate laces that Mike Richards tied together during the 2nd intermission? It’s really a shame that both Colten Teubert and Brayden Schenn were traded away from the Kings because as RudyKelly once said (and I have no idea where)… with Colten, Brayden, Davis and 2 Dustins… the Kings would have an awesome fraternity chapter. 

This could have been the Kings starting 5.

Please don’t boo Ryan Smyth. He wears white skates. That’s awesome.
