The Los Angeles Kings may never get any respect from the media on the west coast. Despite the fact that the team is the reining Stanley Cup champions, local and national news outlets seem to know very little about it. The photo you see above was tweeted by Bailey, the Kings’ official mascot, who wanted to give the folks at NBC Los Angeles a little assistance in properly identifying their hockey team’s players. The gentleman in the top photo is Kings wing Dustin Penner, not head coach Darryl Sutter. The young man on the bottom is actually Jarret Stoll. But NBC LA wasn’t alone in its flub. Bailey also tweeted at the Chicago Sun-Times after they printed a photo of the Sacramento Kings logo, which you see on the right, in place of the LA Kings logo. Where have we seen that before? Unfortunately, this is a recurring theme for the NHL Kings. It’s a Lakers town, and we see examples of that in the media on a regular basis. Good thing we have people like Bailey to at least make an effort to police it.
