When the owner never comes to a game he's not embarased by the team...

When the owner's main concern is the Real Estate benefits of owning a hockey team...

When the owner doesn't care if the "junior team" in the market place gets to the Stanley Cup long before his own team...

And when the owner has a hockey team that needs a goalie, top defenseman and at least two star forewards...

Then you have an owner that should sell his team (perhaps back to Bruce McNall) so we the fans do not have to be disappointed for another 40 years

No one has been a Kings fan longer than I; as long, maybe, but not any longer, so I know a bit about this franchise.

Constant Rebuliding is a bad headline, why you ask ? Well, for most of these 41 years, they have never tried to rebuild ! They have been a Rent-A-Vet type of tyeam; trying to stay in the race while adding a few youth now & again.

That said, this draft has been far & away the best thing Deano has done since he's been ripping AEG & all us fans off, collecting a large salary for all of his terrible moves! He also worked a deal for Jack Johnson. Now, if he stays with this & be honest & just tell everyone trhe Kings may not make it for a few years, but bear with us & we'll be a very solid & young team. But his bad moves far outweigh the good ones!

I went thru all the trading of youth & picks for the likes of Syl Apps, Gary Unger, Brian Glennie & the list goes forever onward, thru GM's as Maguire, Berry, etc.

Now, AEG does not give a rats ass about this team, but damn, they have aa rink in England!

Kings managemnet is only as strong as their weak loink & that starts with the owners, then Tim & down to Dean.

I can't speak for all, but I can for many & that is, we hope they can Deano & let Luc run this program, instead of run it into the ground like Tim & Dean have done - an injured Cloutier ?! A round up of Nagy, Handzus, Calder, Dallman, Preising, & these are but a few of Deans mistakes!

Now, if this team, no matter who the GM is, stays the course & drafts, signs & trades wisely, we will, or should, have a far better team in a few years.
