Letters: Kings' Cup isn't exactly running over now

Firing Dean Lombardi and Darryl Sutter will be judged as one of the darkest days in Kings history. For 45 years, L.A. hockey fans were entranced in a state of mediocrity, feeling grateful for the occasional playoff appearance. Along came these two men to bring us, twice, to hockey's pinnacle and instill unbound pride in our Kings. Forgetting history and blaming them for one failed season is the pinnacle of silliness. It is really the fault of the GM or coach when stars like Kopitar, Gaborik, and Toffoli can't find the back of the net?

Unfortunately, Dean Lombardi has left the Kings just where he found them.
