ASK A KING: LUC ROBITAILLE

by Staff Writer / Los Angeles Kings
Last week, Kings fans emailed in questions for Kings forward Luc Robitaille. The following is what fans wanted to know and what Robitaille's responses were in our March Ask A King.


What are your plans for life after hockey? Dorian from Chatsworth, CA
I don't know. I'll take it as it comes.

How did it feel when you passed Marcel Dionne's record? Jackie D. from North Hollywood, CA
It felt great. That was the guy that took me under his wings at the start of my career. It's a great honor to be mentioned in the same breath with a guy like that.

If you could have your dream team on the ice with you, what five other players would you like to have? Chris from Torrance, CA
Four passers. Just kidding. My dream team would probably be Bobby Orr, The Rocket Richard, Gordie Howe, Gretzky and Ray Bourque.

Of all the great records you have broken, which was the hardest to achieve? Edward from Durham, NC
Winning the Stanley Cup.

Other than Staples Center where is your favorite arena to play in? Riley from Los Angeles
Montreal's Molson Centre now. It used to be the old Chicago Stadium.

What is your most memorable moment as a Kings player? Aron G. from Lancaster, CA
Making the team for the first time.

If you couldn't have played hockey for a career, what do you think you would have done instead? Rob C. from Vancouver, B.C.
I probably would've been a policeman or worked at my dad's scrap yard.

How much longer do you expect yourself to play after this year? Steven from Los Angeles
I don't know.

How do you feel about this current Kings team and what areas do you think the team can improve on to make the playoffs and do some serious damage? Mike from Van Nuys, CA
I really like our team. I think if there is one area to improve it's our depth on defense. To have a great playoff run, you always want to be loaded up on defense. If we have a chance to get one or two experienced defensemen, even if they're not regulars, we should go for it. That's how you win. You've got to get the puck out of the zone. One or two injuries at defense and we might be short. If we could add that depth, that would help.

When you decide to retire, is coaching something you might be interested in doing? Todd from Lone Pine, CA
No.

During your entire NHL career, who has been the toughest defenseman you've played against? James from Dublin, CA
Probably Chris Chelios.
