I agree that the Kings have the players to upset a team in the playoffs, just not the coaching or system to get it done.

With Murray at the helm and no Kopitar, it will take 4 perfect games by the goalie to win a series. Kopitar has been Murray's saving grace and he is done for the year. Without him, the Kings can't generate enough goals with the current style. Kopitar is just too important to Murray's system, he is missed on offense and defense.
This guy named Craig MacTavish got a team all the way to the Finals. I don't think Oiler fans were very fond of him at all. Hell they didn't even have a goaltender. We'll see what happens. I'm not going to make any assumptions personally. What we need is for Doughty and Johnson to start eating minutes like they are capable of. That's the most important thing. Not goalscoring.
