Thanks to Rich for running the live chat yesterday. Looks like it was quite a success. I think you guys already know this, but much of Rich’s coverage of the Kings is done on his own time. You’ve proven an insatiable appetite for anything Kings, and Rich is doing a great job trying to meet that.

    “It’s still a game-to-game thing that we’re making progress and getting better,” said defenseman Tom Preissing, who scored the Kings’ fifth goal and third power-play strike of the evening with a low shot from the top of the right circle.

    “With the amount of talent that we have, if we continue to get better we’re going to win games and surprise some teams.”

    “We’ve got guys competing for each other, sticking up for each other, blocking shots — that’s going to make a difference for our team,” O’Sullivan said.

    “I think we’re going to surprise some people, to be honest.”

    Rich is the best, and we thank him for his hard work.

    This site is a must read many times a day for Kings fans and it has come a long way in a short time. Thanks for all of your hard work, Rich. Truly a fine job done by a class act.

    Thanks… Jill does an outstanding job as well, in all of the areas that she covers (golf, basketball, baseball, football, hockey…did I miss any?). She deserves a raise, if we weren’t slowly going bankrupt.

    Gretzky got great coverage in the local media when he was here, but the Kings as a team have never gotten a fair shake. And it was getting worse with the “major” paper in town peeling back their already mediocre coverage of both teams and the league in general. Thanks to Rich and Jill and anyone else at the Daily News for finally giving LA’s most passionate fan base the respect and coverage they deserve. Coverage was so bad for a few years there I actually had to champion Silvertip Stu Nahan!

    Rich, I give you the highest marks in all areas. Five gold stars or hockey pucks, which ever one you prefer. Only bad thing about this blog, is that it’s very addicting. My school work would be much stronger, if I didn’t constantly visit your site. Keep up the great work and thank you very much.

    Us fans can’t say enough about Rich. Let it be known how much we really apprecieate the dedication. Thanks to you Rich I come to your blog for everything and don’t rely on TSN anymore.

    Jill – are you telling us Rich doesn’t get paid for reporting on the Kings?

    I wasn’t able to watch the game live last night (DVR) but hope the live blog is available again. The first two games I was disappointed at the lack of interaction going on during the game. I like being able to watch the game at home without any distractions, but also getting to vent and cheer, in a sense, with other Kings/hockey fans.

    Talk to Rich and tell him to take our money! I and several others have repeatedly told him we’d be happy to pay for this excellent blog.

    Seriously Rich, if you are doing this mostly on your own time then get your own domain (dns) and we will all follow you there.
