New territory for the Kings

Scared to make predictions until it’s a little safer to do it? I’m with you on that one. I have no clue on how the Kings will perform this year in a new league.

A few days ago a friend of mine and a Kings fan for over 15 years said to me “the Kings are going to be a number one contender in the SPHL”.

I said. “ what are you smoking man.”

A prediction depends on a lot of factors. And at this time, I am out in left field on how this team will perform in the SPHL.

All I know is, that I’ll give them at least 4-7 games into the season and then I’ll tell you exactly where we will end up. That gives me time to figure out this team.

Like I have said before, I don’t even know if Landmesser can coach and what kind of hockey players he has assembled for the 2011-2012 season.

Here is an interview with new head coach Derek…He says he’s put in long hours…I sure hope so!!

This is new territory for the Kings, the teams we will be playing are established, it’s the Kings first kick at the cat.

Energy and execution for me are two of the biggest factors in a hockey game. Will the Kings have that, I guess, we will wait and see.

That’s the way I see it and I’m Joe Sports.

You want fights…let’s hope the Kings have some fighters. Guaranteed in the SPHL, you will have three or four during a game.

What can I say… Insanity !!

Well it’s been 20 years of professional hockey in the Mid-South.
