On this day three years ago the LA Kings had no hope, no goals and Terry Murray lost his job.

December 12th, 2011 was the day that changed the path of this current LA Kings team forever. We here at The Royal Half always maintained that when Terry Murray was hired, he was the coach that was going to get this team to the cusp… but that someone else would take it beyond. We just had no idea that guy would be Darryl Sutter.

So today, sit back and remember Coach Murray. And let the emotion take you over… because it never did for Terry Murray.

And listen to yours truly on SiriusXM NHL Network the day after Terry Murray was fired… saying with conviction that Darryl Sutter is the wrong choice for this Kings team!

But I wasn’t the only one who thought Darryl Sutter was wrong for the Kings!

Make sure you check out the Best of Terry Murray at The Royal Half. And seriously… how have the Edmonton Oilers not hired Terry Murray yet?!?
