If the Kings can play up to their abilities, they should make the playoffs, but it will be fight all the way until the end of the season because of their poor start.
Not that I disagree with you about how hard the task is, but even at the start of the season it doesn't look much better. When I saw that we need to have better record than 7 other WC teams, I never thought: "Oh well, that's easy." It's a tough league with hard salary cap, winning is not easy.
