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.
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.
PART THREE: Robin joins Sean and Keith celebrate the 1-0 Kings victory over the Sharks in the outdoor game the day after. They give their patented three-period game breakdown, compare the festivities of the two California Stadium Series games, and delve into the EPIX coverage.
Then Matt returns for an encore. They avoid any legal discussion this time to delve into the highlight of the night–the Melissa Etheridge performance. They chat a bit about the hockey that took place as well, and Matt provides a stunning prediction for the Kings moving forward.
What happens after a several week hiatus, when a pitiful L.A. losing slump shifts gears into a sustained winning streak? Keith and Sean go longform!
Enjoy the last episode before the big Stadium Series game, which they preview, as Sean and Keith assess the Kings’ play from front to back, play armchair GM, and do some of their patented three-period analysis (among other witty banter).
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.
Too long the Kings were away on the road, and too long since we updated our podcast. Compounded by the fact that this episode didn’t get edited well after its recording, we are a bit behind.
But like an L.A. hockey team that has dug itself into a deep hole, Sean and Keith come roaring back. We discuss the highs of a home streak, the lows of a road trip, and the early aberrations of the conference standings. Keith can’t resist armchair GM, inquiring about the new contract of Jake Muzzin and the pending free agency of Jarret Stoll, and they discuss the enigma of the Blue Jackets and the Kings pattern of trading with them.
