The Kings put up a valiant effort, but in the end, the better team won. That’s not to say this team can’t improve. But as this team is constituted right now, they might not have that far to go.
The Kings lost to the Sharks in overtime, and despite the initial frustration over losing, there’s a lot to be excited about. And Jesse and I discuss them. Like how good the team played without their best player in the playoffs. Like how several players stepped up in Anze Kopitar’s absence. Like how the Kings probably won’t need to go and add someone through free agency. Like how the team has established an organization-wide tracking system to monitor the progress of their prospects. Like how the franchise, while technically playing six minutes longer than last season.
It’s the final podcast of the Kings’ 2010-11 season (we still plan on doing these at the end of each round.) so we have a hard time saying goodbye. Don’t forget, you can still subscribe on iTunes, so you can get the podcast before anyone else does. And don’t forget to like the show on Facebook.
Buck up, Kings fans. We caught yet another glimpse of this team’s potential, and it was glorious. Too bad summer has to get in the way of things.
