The Kings need a goal scorer to fill out their top line, but not a right wing, which is where Iginla plays....they're really thin on the left side, so look for that spot to be filled via trade.
Keith (Santa Clarita)
I saw a rumor Iginla would be a good fit with this team. All things considered, what do you think?

The injuries have caused some disruptions on defense, and with 11 goals allowed in the last two games, it's easy to see where the problems lie. Willie Mitchell is great at clearing loose pucks in front of the net, and that's where the Kings have been burned lately.
Is this going to be a streaky bunch the whole year? Or are the injuries too much to overcome right now?

Didn't see the fight, but isn't that part of the game? Unless of course Smid was tying one of his shoelaces at the time, then Avery should probably face some sort of discipline. Wouldn't put it past him.
Chris Fiegler (Latham,NY)
Did you think that NY Rangers' Sean Avery should have been Suspended for Punching Ladislav Smid of the Edmonton Oilers in the Face?
