A Mighty Conspiracy Against the LA Kings

Most conspiracy theories are flimsy, largely inconceivable and have no facts supporting them.

But when bad things happen, people want to blame something, anything that will shift away attention from the real source of frustration.

In this case, it’s the LA Kings playoff hopes and the obvious tankjob that the rest of the teams in the NHL have undertaken to ensure that the reigning Stanley Cup Champions won’t make the postseason this year.

If you listen to the podcast, the origin sure makes sense.

Make that a tidy 22 minutes of NHL Truther Talk.

But there’s no way that the Anaheim Ducks would purposely lose to Calgary Flames, right? Especially considering they just dropped a game to the Canucks two days prior.

I mean, the Ducks needed this win against the Flames to improve their own playoff chances!

…hmmm maybe not.

Still, I give the Ducks more credit than that.

They are, after all, fighting for the President’s Trophy and home ice advantage throughout the playoffs.

This is all starting to make me uneasy.

The lesson is, kids: Hate always beats love.


Of “coarse” you do.

Once the game started, however, the Ducks showed that they weren’t going rollover for anyone.


*thumbs up*


…and then it all went to hell…



Kings and Ducks fans shared their mixed reactions as the game was unfolding.






Maybe the conspiracy theorists are onto something here…
