Petshark: Talking Stick
Entries with the tag: kevin kurz
As praise for the Kings is heaped onto the web, one of the explanations that keeps being presented is the acquisition of Jeff Carter. I agree, if he and Richards are such great buddies, playing together can’t hurt. Happy players play better.
Oh, they don’t mean that? They mean Carter made the top six so much better? Oh. Here I was getting used to the happy notion that teams know they need more than two lines to really do the job. I guess we’re back to only needing a top six. Please tell me GMs aren’t really thinking that way anymore. Please tell me it’s just confused people trying to make sense of the LA Kings suddenly getting their act together.
“Everyone wants to know” what is up with the San Jose Sharks. They signed a new player! Oh, people don’t mean the Stalberg signing? Okay then.
“Everyone wants to know” might be putting it too strongly, but anyone who’s anyone has noticed that the Sharks are playing way way WAY below expectations.
The players reassure us that they are engaging in the recommended amount of yelling during and after a game, even if they seem calm in front of the cameras. That’s good to know. Maybe someone should set up a noise meter in the room just to be sure.
