Do none of you bother to look at stats? The difference between the Kings and a top-10 offense in the NHL is a grand total of 11 goals. 11... not a hundred not a thousand... 11. That's the point of Penner. Who, if he'd been on the team a whole season, would have increased our total by at least 11 goals. On paper, using basic descriptive stats, we've a top-10 offense.

While, once again, having the 4th best defense in the league.

Who gives a **** about Chicago? If you want to actually put some thought into it the team we're most like, in terms of play, isn't Chicago or the Flyers or the Pens, it's the Canucks. Both teams play defense as 5 men, both teams use transition but would rather puck control and grind, and both teams have good special teams.

Difference is, and yes it's true so don't keep panicking, is that we really are the youngest team in the NHL. So you're going to have to deal with that. Most of the best players on the team wouldn't even be a 1 out of college!
