Big Wille Style

by Anne

Willie Mitchell is a Los Angeles King. A foxy stay-at-home defenseman? Providing a stabilizing presence for Doughty/Johnson? High potential for punching people?

These defensive corps just keeps getting better and better. Willie will have to keep me happy for the first month of the season until Greener recovers from his harrowing shoulder ordeal. He's not American, but no one's perfect. I'm just greatful he was saved from the grodiness of the Vancouver Canucks.

I used to LOVE the Canucks. I loved them waaaay more than the Kings about two years ago. Then... something changed. I'm not sure if it was the irritating smugness of a whole bunch of Canucks fans on Twitter (not ALL, just many), the whininess of Roberto Luongo,  Big Bear's injury-plagued season, or the ridiculousness of Canucks' writers. Whatever it was, all those things combined to make me keep the Canucks at arm's length. If it weren't for Ryan Kesler or...yeah, pretty much if it weren't for Kes, I would flat out just hate the Canucks. But, as it stands, I like Ryan Kesler, Christian Ehrhoff, the Sedins, and Ryan Johnson and that's about it.

Anyway, Big Willie is a King now, and shall be for the next two seasons. I wonder what number he'll be rocking in SoCal?
