I apologize about disappearing over the past week or so. It's just that, as other bloggers have discovered, it is helpful to just take a break and lay off the keyboard for a little bit. Recharge those batteries, so to speak.
Besides, I've found myself distracted by the recent flurry of activity surrounding the Kings. If you don't know, I'm just as rabid a Kings fans as I am a Dodgers fan. The Kings made a surprise pick in the 1st round of the draft a couple weeks ago, they signed 5 free agents to add some veteran presence and resigned, to a 5 year contract, one of the leagues best young defensemen this morning. So, I guess you can say, I've been very happy with their moves lately.
Do I think this all translates into a Stanley Cup Run next year?
No way. I'd be surprised if they got that far, but I think they have a decent shot at the playoffs. And, if you know anything about playoff hockey, you know there is nothing like it.
Do I think they might have the stuff to make a run for the cup in a couple of years?
Definitely! For the first time in a long time the Kings have a great plan, the youngsters in the system to achieve that goal and a GM with the knowledge to pull it off.
Anyway, it is time to get back to my Blue Heaven.
