Quotes from Drew Doughty

Here is a straight forward quote about playing hockey in this generation of the game.  Although hockey is a team sport it used to have big individual stars that relied on their own handling of the puck and scoring.  Here’s what Drew says about the game now,   “What you can expect to do is go to the net hard.  The goalies are so good these days if you’re not getting screens in front, if you’re not getting rebounds or tips, goals aren’t going to go in.”

Of course I like it when Doughty says something in a deadpan sort of way.  When asked about a particularity hard foul on another player Drew said,  “Generally, out West that’s not a penalty.”  Drew is sensitive about penalties s he is well known for spending back to back time in the penalty box.

Jonathan Quick LA Kings

Stanley Cup winners for 2014 LA Kings goalie Jonathan Quick.   He also won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff Most Valuable Player two years ago.  Quick is my son-in-laws favorite player.   This is what Jonathan Quick has to say about   the team’s “magic” and finding a way to get a win: “Obviously we get a bounce that goes against us a little bit there on the second one. It’s still early, so you just stick with it. From a goalie’s perspective, you try and make the next save. With the forwards, they’re just trying to get in deep, wear ‘em out a little bit and get pucks to the net. We were fortunate to get the third there. Now, you start all over again. It’s a zero-zero game and you’re trying to win the next game.”

The LA Kings won the Stanley Cup last night.  I’m a big Kings fan.  My son-in-law plays in a small league which adds more fun watching the kings play.   The painting is of LA kings Dustin Brown captain of the Los Angeles Kings.  He is noted for his physical playing style, consistently ranking among the league leaders in hits[3] and penalties drawn.  (Hitting too hard)  As Dustin says, ““You’ve got to try to go after guys, get guys off their game.”   Being the captain of the LA Kings he takes the responsibility seriously,  “”Being captain is a lot more work than I thought it would be, that’s for sure. But I see it as a welcomed challenge and one that I take very seriously and work hard at. It’s a lot of fun and with this team it’s pretty easy to keep the guys motivated because we all push each other.”   And about the Stanley cup?  ““The Stanley Cup is a special trophy, and you kind of dream about having this chance your whole life if you’re a hockey player.”

The painting is 12″ by 16″ ink and acrylic on 1980’s Sporting News hockey pages (newsprint) mounted on canvas board.

L.A. Kings coach, Darryl Sutter has had some great one-liners during his tenure with the L.A. Kings.  one of my favorites, “They can wear wigs and sunglasses. I don’t care, as long as they’re ready.” (January of 2012 on the L.A. Kings players and whether they should wear helmets in warmups
