LA Kings Fans Have Officially Had Enough With Pierre-Luc Dubois

Talk about wearing out your welcome with record speed! It seems Los Angeles Kings fans have officially turned on Pierre-Luc Dubois as the young forward continues to struggle after signing a massive new deal.

Kings Fans Officially Reach End of Their Rope with Dubois



Dubois was supposedly a massive get for the Kings after an exchange with the Winnipeg Jets in the last offseason. The team instantly signed him to a huge eight-year, $68 million dollar deal, and Dubois took a spot on LA's top line in his first game. Since then, it's been nothing but heartache for Kings fans as Dubois struggled out of the gate and has yet to recover. And, while Dubois is certainly being criticized for his lack of production, fans are also frustrated with what seems like a complete lack of effort at times.

"TRADE DUBOIS.


I'm sick of his s--t. Even with 1.2 secs left in the game the way he just unilaterally decides to not even shoot there and just cruise off while others are hunched ready for a rebound. Play to the g---amn whistle.

Enough is enough. 57 games. I'm done with him."


"Sloppy/Lazy play by Pierre-Luc Dubois.

He was brought in for these 'tough' games.

Gotta be better."

Pierre-Luc Dubois Wears out Welcome in LA in Record Time



Dubois is currently in year one of his eight-year deal, which carries an annual cap hit of $8.5 million. He has a full no-movement clause in the first five years, meaning any attempt to trade him would need his approval from the get go. If Dubois can't improve, the Kings have put themselves in a terrible spot of having him eat a big portion of the team's salary cap while under producing.

In the meantime, Gabe Vilardi, one of the key pieces the Winnipeg Jets received in the Dubois trade, has 30 points in 36 games this season.
