I hope the Kings win the Stanley Cup, like every other Kings fan, but realistically we would need to see crazy odd-defying **** to sniff the second round. Phoenix, Nashville, and San Jose are the three likely teams in our range right now for the postseason. All of those teams will require many goes scored against and each one of them has become adept at lighting us up over the past few years....
I think the Kings can and will give a good accounting of themselves in the first round. It wasn't like there were any guarantees in the first round even with Kopitar in the lineup.

There are all kinds of positives that can come out of this long term. Don't become too fatalistic about it.
