Would you buy a car from Robb Stauber? Did you buy a car from Robb Stauber? The often unorthodox King goaltender--barred from throwing checks at the blue line during the owners' lockout--was the only King player who took a regular-paying, non-hockey job during the labor dispute. He spent a little more than a month working at a Toyota dealership in Southern California. "I'm a better hockey player than a salesman--at least I hope so," he said. "It was fun and I learned a lot."

At least King rookie goaltender Jamie Storr will have had 24 hours' notice before making his NHL debut tonight against Dallas at the Forum. He nearly made that first appearance on Sunday with no warning. Storr went from sitting in the stands in street clothes at the Forum to throwing on his equipment in less than 10 minutes to almost playing the third period of a tie game. This was because King goaltenders were getting injured at a rate of one per period against Edmonton.

The Kings, in one of their quieter rounds of negotiations this summer, signed goaltender Robb Stauber but chose not to announce it. Stauber signed a three-year deal worth about $1.5 million. In June, Stauber, upset that the Kings had left him unprotected in the expansion draft, criticized the team, his remarks in The Times angering management. Coach Barry Melrose said here Monday, though, that he had no problem with any of Stauber's comments. "I don't want a bunch of robots," he said.

Robb Stauber, winner of the 1988 Hobey Baker Award as the most outstanding player in collegiate hockey, rejected a contract offer from the Kings last week and plans to return to the University of Minnesota for his senior year, his attorney said Sunday. However, agent Ron Salcer of Manhattan Beach said that he had been retained by Stauber, which would be a violation of National Collegiate Athletic Assn. rules. Stauber could be declared ineligible for next season. Salcer said that he was hired by Stauber last Thursday and that he and the Kings were close to reaching a contract agreement until Stauber, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound goaltender, had a change of heart on Saturday.

Goaltender Robb Stauber has lived with the memory of the Winnipeg Jets for 2 1/2 years. He saw lots of those red, white and blue uniforms swarming during that game--and red lights, too--while giving up three goals during the first four minutes in an inauspicious NHL debut for the Kings in March of 1990. Rogie Vachon, then the general manager, saw red, too, outraged at the lack of support in front of Stauber.

Goaltender Robb Stauber did his part, making 33 saves, including seven on breakaways, but the battered and bruised Kings still lost to the Chicago Blackhawks, 2-1, on Sunday.

The Kings, losing on the road for the 26th time this season, have lost 13 times in their last 23 games, going 5-13-5 record during that span.

Long considered the Kings' goaltender of the future, Robb Stauber feels like their goaltender of the past. Angry at being left unprotected for Thursday's NHL expansion draft, Stauber said Monday that he might be better off elsewhere. He has been in the King organization since 1989 and finally broke through this season, going 15-8-4 with a 3.84 goals-against average. Stauber, 25, was in goal when the Kings clinched their first-round playoff series against Calgary.

Not after Jimmy Carson had scored the Kings' ninth and final goal. Not after the Calgary Flames had fired the last of their 42 shots. Not after the Forum crowd of 16,005 had starting singing "Good-by" to the Flames. Not after the sounds of "Hit the Road, Jack" began blaring through the Forum sound system. Not until the final second had ticked away in Thursday's series-clinching 9-6 Kings victory did goalie Robb Stauber finally relax, finally crack a smile.

Robb Stauber's psyche has been sliced, diced and second-guessed at least twice by Barry Melrose, a head coach who seems to be moonlighting as a head doctor. One week, Stauber was not even on the Kings' bench, having been demoted to No. 3 goaltender. But Sunday afternoon, Melrose put the team's playoff chances on the line in Game 4 by starting Stauber, a playoff rookie.

No, Barry Melrose is not an evil guy, even though he has said he has a "gulag" mentality. That perception fell by the wayside when the Kings pulled into this posh resort, the Banff Springs Hotel, hours after their playoff victory over Calgary in Game 1 of the NHL playoffs. His intense approach has had many of the Kings feeling as if they have been mired in a psychological game. He has screamed at Luc Robitaille. He sentenced veterans Jari Kurri and Charlie Huddy to the press box.

The only thing I can guarantee about the Stanley Cup playoffs, which begin Sunday, is that the Kings will not be eliminated by the Edmonton Oilers again. . . . After knocking out the Kings five of the last seven times, the Oilers are among the anemic eight who failed to qualify for the tournament this season. . . . Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that the Kings will advance past the second round for the first time. . . .
