Kings counting on new coach John Stevens to ease scoring woes

Kings counting on new coach John Stevens to ease scoring woes

Show me the goals. Show me the creativity the Kings lacked while Darryl Sutter insisted on coaching a heavy, physical game in defiance of the NHL’s trend toward speed and skill.

If John Stevens can bring a fresh approach to a team that had become physically battered and mentally stale, if he can coax more scoring out of them by loosening the reins without compromising their defensive excellence, then he won’t be just the safe pick to replace Sutter.

If Stevens can awaken their dormant scoring skills and be the new voice they need, then he will be the right pick for a team that was stuck in mud under Sutter. With the right roster changes, they might have another Stanley Cup run...
