On behalf of the Los Angeles Kings, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the passionate and undying support that you have shown the team for so many years. Your support of this franchise is unparalleled in the world of sports. Few sports teams can boast a commitment from their fans that encompasses 40 years of dedicated support that continues to thrive despite never having been rewarded with a championship. Your relentless fervor is one of the prime sources of motivation for my staff to continually raise the bar of our work ethic in order to deliver the type of product you so richly deserve.Something which you can read by clicking anywhere on that last sentence there. As a fan of the Los Angeles Kings, I fully support Dean and as some of the fans on the LGK message board say 'In Dean we Trust'.
I communicate frequently with our fans and I know that each year you remain hopeful that we will make the playoffs. We have taken many positive steps as an organization this past season but were unable to climb into playoff positioning as the season wore on. I want to assure you that all of our end-of-season discussions with our players involved a clear message and understanding that next season carries an expectation that we will be playing playoff hockey. Most importantly, please understand that we are following our plan to turn this team into an annual contender and we will not steer away from this path.
Please allow me some time to update you on your Los Angeles Kings:
While I'm talking about the Kings, I should mention that the folks at TSN put together a nice little game plan for the Kings in the Off season, pointing out some of the things the organization could do with the restricted and unrestricted players. It's a great read if you're interested: TSN Offseason Game Plan - Los Angeles Kings.
In the meantime, I should really focus on summer time activities eh?
