    Favorite King of All Time

    I see a lot of views, but only a few of us actually post to the forum. If there are people that are just reading, I encourage you to post so we can have more opinions and conversation. I'll put this thread out there as sort of a 'conversation starter'. I don't know whether it will work or not but I will give it a shot.

    Who is your favorite Kings player of all time and why?

    Mine is Luc Robitaille. He didn't have the skating ability you would want, but he figured out how to be great without it and he always seemed to enjoy playing the game. It was also fun to yell "LUUUUUUUUUUUC!!!" every time he touched the puck.

    I also had the pleasure of meeting Robitaille at a 'Skate With the Kings' promotion when I was about 11 or 12 and got his autograph and a picture with him. My dad was having trouble working the camera, so Luc turned to me and with he French Canadian accent joked, "Look at your dad, what is he thinking?" My dad and I laughed about that one for a while.

    Palffy was definately on one of my favorite all time lines. That Allison, Deadmarsh, Palffy line was so much fun to watch.

    Man, I wish I had gotten a chance to see him play. I was born in '83 so I didn't get to see him or the Triple Crown Line play, unfortunately all I get is replays.

    He/They were unreal.

    This regal line was formed in January 1979 when center Dionne was teamed with second-year right winger Taylor and left winger Simmer, who went on to become one of league's most prolific units. In 1979-80, the line produced 146 goals and 328 points and played in the NHL All-Star Game at the Montreal Forum.

    The line played together in that allstar game, that just doesn't happen.

    I saw a Kings video and they talked about that line for a while, they said that during the allstar game they announced the line together rather than idividually, pretty cool. I wish I got a chance to see them play, I didn't start really watching until '91 so I did get to see Taylor play but not on the line with Dionne and Simmer.

    Wow, a lot of love for Palffy. Don't get me wrong, he was a great player for us but he wouldn't be in my top 5, possibly not even my top 10.

    I'd have to agree with OP and a couple others. Luc Robitaille is definitely my favorite. Partly because he stood out so much when I first started watching hockey and because his name is fun to say.

    I still love Gretzky, Granato, and Sydor even though he only played a handful of seasons in LA.

    Marty McSorley. Basically because he was Getzky's personal bodygaurd, and I've had beers with him before...really cool guy.

    I also loved Blake (had his jersey back in 93), Deadmarsh, Ziggy, Granato, and of course Bob and Jim.

    Ziggy was fun to watch.

    I liked Tomas Sandstrom, loved that Granato/Sandstrom/Gretzky line...

    There are so many... oddly, I liked the Bandit Daniel Berthiaume in goal.

    Another one of my favorites was Ian Laperriere because you always knew when he was on the ice. I love how physical Brown plays but Lappi was an absolute bone crusher out there. I don't know if anybody remembers Eric Lacroix but when he was linemates with Laperriere it seemed like all you heard was bodies hitting the boards.
