Episode 40: Cannot Get Started

Beginning the 2015-16 NHL season with three losses was not in the plans. Sean consoles a despairing Keith as they recap the first three games of the Kings season, using some patent-pending postgame analysis.

After a thorough recap of the Canucks-Kings games and a skimming of the Sharks and Coyotes games, Keith and Sean walk through their predictions of the 2015-16 season. They review each team in the Pacific Division and the winners of the other divisions. Before they conclude with teams to enjoy following from afar, Robin makes an appearance to brighten everyone’s day.

Episode 38: Dark Days of Summer

End of June, end of July (end of August!?)–what’s the difference for the 2015 Los Angeles Kings?

It has been a busy offseason, but for all the wrong reasons for armchair GMs like yours truly. Sean and Keith do an admirable job recapping the ugly, the bad, and the occasional good. Tune in for a rapid-fire rundown of: the Jones-Lucic trade, the Williams departure, the Sekera contract, the 2015 Draft, the Voynov cesspool, the Richards scandal, the Stoll kerfuffle, the Ehrhoff signing, defensive pairings, the Toffoli re-signing, the Kopitar non-signing, and the apex: the addition of Jhonas Enroth.

 

Episode 36: Total Richards Recall

Long form, because this is several weeks of Kings chatter crammed into one episode!

Sean and Keith discuss the wild, wild West, the restoration of Mike Richards to the LA family, and the current New York road trip. Keith has a bone to pick with NHL standings, Sean crystal balls potential playoff matchups, and they digress into the GM proposal of revised overtime rules.

And what podcast wouldn’t be complete without a discussion of Nintendo Ice Hockey.

P.S. Congrats Scotty!

Episode 35: Sekera Era

Lots to review, so Sean and Keith jump right in!

They break down the trade for Andrej Sekera, evaluate the Clifford and Nolan contract extensions, and compare bottom-six Kings centers.

The first two periods are a classic blend of armchair GM, as they look ahead to GM Lombardi’s possible moves in the off-season and break down other key trades around the league. Sean and Keith then close with the current plight of LA, from their 8-game win streak to a 3-game skid.

Episode 29: BONUS HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Happy holidays!

What better way to celebrate the 2014 holiday season than by taking a vacation! That’s right, the Kings of Kings have been on an extended break for about a month now, but we’ve returned to bring you a holiday special.

On December 16, Keith and Sean recorded a whole podcast while watching (nearly) the entirety of the Blues-Kings game. Sync up the game if you can and enjoy this as something like a Director’s Commentary track to the game, or simply consume it as several weeks worth of podcasts rolled into one.

Episode 28: American Thanksgiving

It’s been too long–but isn’t that how it always feels?

Sean and Keith had the good fortune to watch a game in person, which the Kings had the poor fortune to lose to those brutal Blackhawks. Sean gives his patented game breakdown and they review the state of the NHL at the 25-game mark.

Episode 27: Move-on-vember

Whoah-oh here they come! Picking up steam and catching up fast.

Sean and Keith are back, providing their winning 3-period recap on the Panthers-Kings game, touching on the prior week’s games, and getting in to the bizarre Penguins-Rangers finish.

And find out the reason why Sean goes on record saying: “That, to me, warmed my heart to the Ducks”

Plus: surprise guest at the end! And sound quality will be better next time, apologies.
