For the first time in more than 20 years of existence, the Kings appear good enough to make a serious run at the Stanley Cup. It might surprise their fans, though, to know that the Kings are not the first local hockey team to challenge for a national championship. In fact, Los Angeles once actually boasted a national champion, and the entire championship series was played before the hometown fans. The season was 1943-44.

The NHL trading deadline passed last week and King fans breathed deep sighs of relief. Considering some of their moves, perhaps the best King trade is no trade at all. Not included in this list of 10 worst are trades involving only draft picks, of which there have been plenty. The Kings, in fact, have thrown away first-round picks in droves. Some of them became Ray Bourque, Phil Housley and Tom Barrasso.

On the ice at San Jose Arena, there was a wild celebration. But in the special box containing the Gretzky family, there was only silence. Stunned silence. For a couple of seconds, there was no visible reaction to Wayne Gretzky's 801st career goal, tying Gordie Howe's all-time NHL mark. "We all froze," said Mike Barnett, Gretzky's agent. "We realized we were witnessing history. It was like time stood still in the arena."

It has always been Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky. Now, at least for a few days before they trade places, the two hockey legends are on equal footing at the top of NHL's all-time goal list. Gretzky and his boyhood idol, Howe, now share one of the sport's most hallowed records. Gretzky scored twice here on Sunday afternoon to tie Howe's record of 801.
