Insider Reveals Los Angeles Kings' Plans Amid Losing Streak

The Los Angeles Kings, currently facing a challenging phase in their season, are not planning to make any major changes to their roster or management approach for the time being.

Despite the team's recent struggles, the Kings' management has decided to maintain their current course.

This decision comes in the wake of defenseman Drew Doughty's candid remarks criticizing his teammates for their performance and effort levels, highlighting internal tensions within the team.

The Kings have a 2-7-5 record since Dec. 28, but are surprisingly still holding onto a playoff position, currently holding the first Wild Card spot, tied with the Nashville Predators and three points ahead of the St. Louis Blues.

According to Darren Dreger, a well-respected hockey insider from TSN, the Kings' strategy is to "stay the course…for now," despite the mounting pressure and disappointing results.

This approach suggests a level of confidence in the existing roster and coaching staff, as well as a reluctance to make hasty decisions in response to the team's current form.

The Kings' management seems to be focusing on stability and consistency, rather than pursuing immediate and potentially disruptive changes.

However, with the NHL trade deadline approaching and the Kings in a somewhat precarious position in the Western Conference standings, there may be a need for reassessment if their performance does not improve.

The team's decision to hold steady, for now, reflects a strategic choice to focus on internal improvements and team dynamics, rather than seeking external solutions through trades or roster changes​​. That could very well change, however, if the losing continues much longer. Photo Credit:  Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports
