    Nice job...I'm gonna throw in Thomas Hickey, Colten Teubert, Andrei Loktionov, Viatcheslav Voyonov, Oscar Moller, and last but not least Johnathan Bernier (best goalie in the minors) as some up and comers.

    I hope you can get to a game during the playoffs...I went to game 3, and it was amazing. I've never seen Staples center like that before...even the post game show out front was insane.

    My dad and I went to game 6 back in '93, the game where we knocked out Calgary on the way to reaching the finals. The Forum was absolutely rocking that night.

    My dad went to game 3 and said the same thing as you that the Staples Center was crazy. He compared it to that game back in '93.

    Welcome, you've come at a good time. Dean Lombardi took over a few years ago and immediately started rebuilding. He went out and got a lot of young talent and now are beginning to be competetive again after years of not being very competitive at all.

    This young team we have now should be a force in the league for years to come.

    Very interesting that you say that. I have been a Kings and Lakers fan for a long time and I now reside in San Antonio where nobody follows hockey, its all Spurs country here . Talking to some of the basketball fans at my work who ask about hockey when I put it on tv, I always compare them to the Thunder.

    If you have never been, I definately recommend going to a game if you can. I didn't become a fan until I went to a game, its a completely different expirience.
