You know what time it is!

Kings notes:

  • THXBUD takes a look the gut-wrenching loss to the Blackhawks and comes a way with a lot of positives.
  • Patrick Kane learned he lost his grandfather before Monday's victory in LA. [HockeyBuzz]
  • Elliotte Friedman has a good bit of info on the Kings in today's 30 Thoughts. Namely, the Oilers couldn't swallow any of Sam Gagner's contract this season if traded to LA.
  • Copper and Blue takes a look at what kind of return they'd expect for Sam Gagner.
  • The New York Times had a nice profile of Slava Voynov today as part of a 'getting to know Olympic athletes' type article. They described Slava as a pesky agitator, which is amazing.
  • LA Kings Insider takes a fun look at pre and post-Olympic trends from Kings players going back to 1998.
  • Also from LAKI, Darryl Sutter had some interesting things to say about Tyler Toffoli playing the left side.
  • The Royal Half relives the month of January in gif form. Long live the Scrivens bench interview bomb.
  • [A late addition: Jeff Schultz has been demoted to Manchester. Clears a spot for an injured player, or... maybe... someone else.]
  • Around the league:

  • Hey look the Ducks are losing now too! [Anaheim Calling]
  • And the Sharks had a third period meltdown and dropped one to the Flyers. Misery loves company.
  • Andrew MacDonald is a really bad defenseman. The Isles are looking to trade him and Lighthouse Hockey argues, based on recent history, that they might actually be able to get a decent return for him.
  • A very interesting look at how the Habs screwed the pooch by trading Raphael Diaz and over-value the contribitions of Douglas Murray. Also, interesting comments on how big, tough crease clearing defenseman are over-valued in general.
  • Eric T. looks at how analytics are changing the way the mainstream media covers hockey.
  • Finally, be sure to bookmark SBNation's Trade Rumor hub if you want stay up-to-date on the latest.
