Dallas top 7 forwards are superior in every category except for total games played (544 vs 537). Dallas is a year younger, scored 12 more goals, 11 more assists, 23 more points, and have higher pts/gm (.731 vs .680). (I went top-7 so that Simmonds was included)

And that's in front of our admittedly not-so-offensively-gifted Defense.

So yes, if Dallas adds two top pairing defensemen (such as Doughty or Johnson) we'd be every bit as much of a contender - if not moreso - than LA.

So please, we don't need your sympathy. We don't need a complete rebuild, in fact we have better and younger talent up front than your team. We have every reason to expect good players to want to come here.
LA has also had 9 1st round picks 15th and lower since the 2003 season....just sayin
