What do Kings fans do in the off season?
Friday, May 8, 2009
The 11th episode of KingsCast is out! Have a listen at KingsCast.net and please leave a comment on the popular facebook page! The infamous duo has been working hard for the past three seasons bringing Kings fans podcasts with a sarcastic edge. For example, if you've been in a scoring slump, you're going to hear about it with "helpful" suggestions for getting out of it.
Recently the duo has become a trifecta with an added member. That's right, folks. I charged my way into their studio hoping I'd be welcome. You can see for yourself if I actually accomplished that. Please do and let me know!

In the Slovakia vs. Czech Republic game during the 2009 IIHF World Championship, Tomas Surovy swung his stick and hit his own goalie as if he was in a T-ball game. What makes this more unbelievable is that the goalie was JAROSLAV HALAK, GOALIE FOR THE MONTREAL CANADIENS!!!! I'm sorry, Tomas, but don't take your frustrations out on the relief goalie who currently plays in the best league in the world.
I'm curious as to why Halak wasn't the starter for Slovakia. Starter Lasek let in 6 goals before the Slovakian coach pulled him for Halak. This video has just flusttered me to the point of silence, and I don't have time to verbally kick Surovy's ass. Not really surprising, but news stories on the game and the IIHF website have virtually no mention of this incident. This would have brought one of the largest suspensions if it had occurred in the NHL, and if I were Halak, I'd request to leave the club and tournament.
