Crown Conversations: Consistently Inconsistent Chaos Creators

Which team will show up on any given is a huge mystery. Some nights, they’re dominant against excellent teams while other nights, they seem to struggle with who they are as a team.

Not Dead Ryan Dunn makes his miraculous return from the grave to chat with James and Robyn about the Los Angeles Kings’ over reliance on Philip Danault and Anze Kopitar, who are leading the way for their lines and the team as a whole. But the lines with Brendan Lemieux and Dustin Brown have been struggling off and on for much of January. Who is this team? According to James, they’re Chaos Creators. But for Robyn, the lack of consistency is tied to a still-unknown identity three years into head coach Todd McLellan’s tenure.

The trio also consider who, if anyone, the team should target at the trade deadline and what could make the Kings more successful overall (spoiler: playing the kids).

Unfortunately, there will be no transcript to accompany this episode. My sincerest apologies to those who need it! The next podcast will definitely have a transcript to go along with the episode.
