  1. – Jonathan Quick's absence derailed their season before it even got started; even after his return they struggled to score goals. Remember their 2014 playoff run when they could rack up goals in bunches?? Not seeing that happen this time around. The Kings MIGHT be still a tough team to compete with, perhaps the off-ice changes might light a spark under the team…but the Kings will be hard pressed to make the playoffs. They've fallen off quite a bit since winning the Cup in 2014, & with other teams around them getting better, it's going to be a struggle for the Kings to squeak into the playoffs. And eventually…they'll have to face the fact that it might be time to…start over.

  2. Lineup:
    Cammeleri – Kopitar – Gaborik
    Pearson – Carter – Toffoli
    Kempe – Dowd – Brown
    Clifford – Shore – Lewis

    Forbort – Doughty
    Muzzin – Martinez
    Gravel – LaDue

    RIP this team ain't making playoffs we'd be lucky to hit 200 goals

  3. Rebuild time: Quick and Kopitar don't have much time left as superstars and there's nothing to like outside of Martinez, Muzzin, and Carter. Toffoli and Pearson were okay, but aren't elite players. No playoffs for a couple of seasons, sorry LA.
