08:15 AM ET 01.24 | Kings coach Darryl Sutter doesn't suffer from mincing his words. [Sutter] was at it again on this textbook winter day in Alberta. With the Kings trying to avoid a 0-3 start, attention turned to the future availability of veteran defenseman Willie Mitchell. Mitchell had knee surgery during the lockout and is moving along. Not fast enough, apparently. "You know what, he's got doctor's clearance," Sutter said Wednesday. "He's got trainers' clearance. Coaches want him to clear himself. So do it." That did not happen. Mitchell does things his way, an old-school defenseman with a new-age vibe. Reporters call it engaging. Bewildering might be another description for those trying to get him back in action. He has made the mistake of coming back prematurely.

Something tells me the Kings will be okay too.

It'll be okay, Duhryl's a new-age kinda guy too. :-)

He has made the mistake of coming...prematurely.




Don't worry, HC will set him straight!

Old school defenseman with a new age vibe??? What is that?

Play with pain. In his case he seems to have two pains.

Duhryl's heart is big and he's a guy really concerned about everyone. He'll give Willie a hug, tell him it'll be OK and not to worry. Kick him in the *** tell him "start to hustle you *** "
