*awesome saxophone riff* Who can it be now? 

Certainly not the young dominant well oiled machine that was the Los Angeles Kings from 2009 to 2014, the team that won the Stanley Cup in six games against the New Jersey Devils. Or the LA Kings who beat the Rangers in five games for the Cup. Is that the LA Kings at my door? No, of course not. That LA Kings team died long ago in a horrible house fire. The LA Kings I see now is a joke, pathetic, terrible. Sure they make the playoffs, but look like absolute dog shit against teams like the San Jose Sharks, another once great team reduced to absolute trash. 

The entire LA Kings is their goalie Jonathan Quick, a once great but now aging old man who just can't keep up. The Kings are in a St. Louis Blues situation of sorts, their entire team is one player. I can put it truthfully, Jonathan Quick is terrible as a goalie. Is it entirely his fault? No, he can only do so much for his team, especially when the rest of his teammates are inexperienced rookies, or old men who belong in long term care homes more so than playing hockey. 

Jonathan Quick is no superstar anymore, he is truly terrible. In fairness, the rest of the team is terrible as well. What can be done to fix this miserable, screaming, shreiking mess? First of all, don't make one player your entire team (I'm looking at you St. Louis Blues). It simply does not work. The Kings made that ever fatal mistake by making Jonathan Quick their entire world, much like a 13-year-old girl's first boyfriend. The Kings are a 13-year-old girl, and Quick is their first boyfriend. No matter how bad it gets, they won't want to move on.

The Kings' other major problem is the fact that there are so many old men on the team they look like a retirement home in Orlando. There's a problem when most your roster is 33, 32, 35 and so on. Most everyone on the team is so old, the Kings could pass for a retirement home at this point in time. 

Hopefully the Kings will mature and learn their lesson, but my hopes aren't high. Maybe I'm simply just too damn pessemistic.
