LA Times: "Coach Wants More From Kings Top Line"

Well, here's MY headline:


More than ELEVEN SECONDS....

Eleven seconds is what I got last night, from Patrick O'Sullivan on the Kings powerplay. And, to make matters worse, I had to endure those eleven seconds with him sharing the ice with Wayne Simmonds... COME ON ASSHOLE, what the hell is wrong with you? Are you SERIOUSLY trying to win a hockey game that was clearly within your grasp? Granted, J.S. Giguere was lights out and terrific the entire game, but you had Kyle Calder bumbling his way through over three minutes of power play time that could have been better spent with O'Sullivan's occasional flair for the offensive (and I mean that in a GOOD way.) While Calder had the puck a good 3 inches from the goal line and still couldn't figure out how to tap it into the net, O'Sullivan sat nailed to the bench while his even strength linemate Brian Boyle got just a shade under two minutes of time with the man advantage, and newly installed right wing (DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THIS NONSENSE) Peter Harrold spent almost four minutes at the point on whatever "second unit," Murray threw out there. Hell, Michal Handzus, who I swear will spend 25 consecutive pointless games (literally and figuratively) got over four and a half minutes on the PP.

I'm beating the O'Sullivan drum, and I don't believe he's playing the role of malcontent. I think Murray is just making BAD decisions.

And, in the dead horse department: Parros and May were both injured... did we really need to see Raitis Ivanans in a uniform? Doesn't he have a suit he needs to model for the press box? You want a guy who will "bang bodies" for 7 or 8 meaningless shifts that MIGHT know what to do with the puck if it accidentally lands on his stick? I'm voting for Derek Armstrong, who, as useless as he's been in so many more important situations over the last umpteen years (so it seems) --- the guy has channeled Don Kozak this year, and has been willing to skate from east to west, north to south and hit anyone. That would have done just fine last night. Instead we saw Ivanans out there with FIVE minutes left in a scoreless game... and then again with TWO minutes left in a scoreless game. Poll the other 29 coaches in the NHL... How many of them would put this deep freezer on skates on the ice in those two situations? Poll the other 29 coaches in the NHL... How many of them would let a gifted and intuitive forward like Patrick O'Sullivan rot on the bench during the myriad of power play time the Kings accumulated last night?

Falling short of saying I miss Marc Crawford, I still say that even he wouldn't have callously screwed the fans out of some potential entertainment in lieu of the mysterious lump of crap that he went back to the well with time and time again last night.
