That might have been true at the beginning of the season, but this team has consistently shown from game 1 through game 66 that they are poised to go far in the playoffs this year.
This is a young but very talented team that will definitely contend for the cup next year and the years after that, as long as they stay together. I am not prepared to say they can get to the finals this year, because it appears San Jose and Chicago are just too strong this year, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Kings make it to the WCF and give either San Jose or Chicago a VERY BAD TIME of it.
This team's talent can take them very far...they are just not a Montreal or a Boston in the Least fighting for that eighth spot, this team is much farther than that already.
Having said all that, it is clear the West is brutally tough this year. With the exception of Colorado, I wouldn't be surprised if any playoff contender makes it to the cup finals...it is that tough, and that even.
