Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Rich Hammond at the LA Kings site:
For the bulk of the summer, housed in a small, windowless office in an industrial section of El Segundo, Terry Murray has been at work, laying the groundwork for a season in which he, his fellow coaches and Kings players will shoulder increased expectations.
Offseason additions of veterans such as Mike Richards, Simon Gagne and Ethan Moreau, coupled with the natural maturation of a talented, young team, has led many league pundits to tab the Kings as top contenders in the Western Conference.
Can the KIngs pull it off? They’ll take the first step on Sept. 17, when training camp opens and players officially take the ice for the first time. For Murray, in a way, it will be a culmination though, an end to months of preparation and planning.
“There’s a method to the madness, in terms of what goes on before that first day of training camp,” Murray said. “It goes way back, to literally the end of the previous year.”
