Los Angeles Kings

Here at Rink Royalty we love our Kings, obviously. But outside of Los Angeles, and even in Los Angeles, there are people that despise the Kings and the players that call themselves Kings.

For good reason too I guess. The Kings are now a threat and a successful organization, an organization that has found success through grit.

With grit come hits, and with hits comes enemies. No one knows this more than Dustin Brown. People have said Brown is a cheap shot artist and dives all too much. But, I feel it all comes from fans just being a little tired of Brown crushing their top line guys night in and night out.

But I’m not biased at all.

The Kings did just pick up Daniel Carcillo, an ultimate pest. He is up there on the hatred list across the league. But he hasn’t played for the Kings yet so I don’t really consider him qualifying for the title as of now.

    This article is poop. With the exception of the flames you just picked really good star players. You just personally hate them because they play well and play against your team often. I like how you omit the fact that the yakupov goal was to tie the game with 4.6 seconds left in the game, he’s in his rookie season and he just scored a huge goal. He’s allowed to be a bit too exuberant

    Why do you call the article “Most hated PLAYERS” and then go on to name teams?

    Burrows? Really? Over Kesler? Wow, methinks you’ve missed most of the recent LA Vancouver matchups. Other than the odd bite, Burr plays with a boatload of integrity. And Mason Raymond? The guy has never dove or cheap shotted once in his career; take it easy on the li’l guy, he’s just light on his skates is all. Too bad Lapierre’s gone or you would have had an instant shoo in, but it’s really gotta be Kesler now, no? (also, Bieksa is a king among men, and should have been invited to the Olympic camp)
