Jewelcast, Episode 4.10: Old Stories With Different Endings
We last spoke to you after a shockingly brutal elimination at the hands of the Vegas Golden Knights. The Kings appear to be done licking their wounds and have moved on to... doing the same things they did last offseason, or the offseason before. Signing old guys, missing out on the big free agent of the summer, and talking about how they're adapting to a new NHL.
But who's to say that the Kings' efforts will end like 2017 or 2018, and not like 2012 or 2014? After all, the Caps looked like they were writing the same old story before submitting a different final chapter a couple weeks ago. And LA's already flipped the script in June by locking down Ilya Kovalchuk, providing an epilogue eight years in the making.
Sarah, Robyn, and Eric are here to talk about how the playoffs, the draft, and of course, the Ilya Kovalchuk deal. Plus, we look ahead to free agency, figure out what else LA is gonna do with their summer vacation, and figure out what was worth remembering in 2017-18.
