Taking Randy Carlyle’s Advice & Finding Inner Peace

Jeff Miller of the Orange County Register tweeted:

Randy Carlyle met with Bobby Ryan today concerning trade rumors and told him he “has to find that inner peace in himself to deal with it.”

Sage advice. This got me thinking. Bobby Ryan is not the only one under stress right now. How about our LA Kings’ players and coaches? Where is their place of inner peace within themselves?

Terry Murray: That place where every NHL scoreboard after overtime reads 0-0 and the shootout is replaced with a dispassionate staring contest among the opposing coaches.
Dustin Penner: The place where I can get $4.25 million per season for being funny and having a kick ass collection of songs on my iPod…and where women don’t lie…and Dean Lombardi loves me.
Kyle Clifford: Where punching others is the preferred means of communication.
Drew Doughty: Inner Peace? 8 years, $56 million, bitch!
Jack Johnson: Where my buddy Bobby Ryan is wearing a Kings’ jersey and Drew plays for a team where we see him twice per season.
Scott Parse: I just got a note from Parse: “Pulled hamstring and injured hip on the way to finding inner peace. Out for the rest of the season.” Poor guy.
Jamie Kompon: Where Matthew Barry doesn’t exist.
Brad Richardson: Where we play against the Colorado Avalanche 41 times per season…and slow, no talent, pylons don’t exist in the NHL.
Jonathan Bernier: Oh shit, Jonathan Quick just took over Bernier’s inner peace place.
Kevin Westgarth: Where an ivy league education increases my dangling skills.
Trevor Lewis: Hands, for the love of God, where I have hands.
Where is your place of inner peace within yourself?

  1. Wow… these are pretty fucking funny. I especially love the TM one.

    Anze Kopitar: Where I have wingers.

    Willie Mitchell: Where all I have to do to check people is flash my epic mustache in their direction.

    Jonathan Quick: Where every game doesn’t come down to me having a .999 save percentage.

    Ethan Moreau: Where I can take bad penalties and still play in ever game.

    Trent Hunter: Where I have hair and don’t miss wide open nets.

    • Your one for Anze ‘would be’ funny………..

      if it weren’t so damned true. Forget him playing w a Parise, or whatever other ‘trade’ name floats about. Just imagine a really good winger who has a touch around the net. Look at Lupol this year in Toronto, who else? Scott Hartnell. I’m looking for the non obvious ones. There are a decent amount of them out there, and for the moment at least he really has never ever been paired w a natural goal scorer.

      Hey, I’m angry with you dude. Now you’ve made me sad :-(

      …………………….. just joking.

      What was that about uaeroM nahtE?

  2. Brad richardson where tm plays him

  3. Dustin Penner where good is not best.

    (I always believe that you put your best players into the lineup whenever you’re ready to go, and you play those guys. Penner is a good player, and we’re just waiting our time for him to get a little bit better before he goes in. — TM)

  4. Looks like Ryan won the battle. Carlyle was fired and Bruce was hired to replace him.

    All the assistants were fired by the Ducks too.

    • I thought it was really strange they were considering trading him. I couldn’t make sense of it. If anyone, I thought getz would be more likely based on his occasional lazy ass play.
