I thought winning playoff rounds showed success? How many rounds have they won the past 2 seasons? Phoenix fell 8 points last season and down 2 places, the Kings only lost 3 points and 1 place. Phoenix has superior coaching, but I wouldn't trade their roster for the Kings roster (AHL/NHL/Juniors)

The Kings went from 79 points to 101 points. That is a 22 point improvement in one season. Seems better than a 10 point improvement that the Ducks achieved.

Looking further, here are the point totals for the three teams since Dean took over LA:

Anaheim: 98-110-102-91-89-99 - How is that improvement? Stanley Cup champion to out of the playoffs to a 1st round exit
Phoenix: 67-83-79-107-99 - Very similar to the Kings improvement, same number of years - 0 playoff series wins
Los Angeles: 68-71-79-101-98

PSP, would you trade the Phoenix roster minus Byz (I would be shocked if he re-signs with Phoenix) for the Kings current roster?
