I have seen nothing different about this season's version of the Kings that makes me think they'll be able to avoid the same type of slides they had last season.
I agree. I was being a little facetious. The behavior pattern certainly exists. 5-1-1 followed by 1-3-1. The thing is, every team has this happen to them in the course of a season. That doesn't bother me. What bothered me last season was the defense, which was a hallmark of the team all season long completely fell apart in the playoffs. Obviously we won't be able to see if that has improved until the playoffs roll around.

I just don't get too worked up over what's happening in the regular season now that the team is as good as it is. When there was/is a significant fear of missing the playoffs, then I'll start caring a little more, but it's way too premature to be worrying about that right now.

The real test will come in April. Until then.. meh.
