We are also much younger and elite and most importantly healthy this time around. Give me Quick, Kopitar, Richards, Johnson and Doughty over Allison, Deadmarsh, Palffy, Blake and Potvin any time (Though I'd love a healthy Palffy/Deader on this squad).
Well, to be fair, we never got to see a HEALTHY Allison and Deadmarsh for an extended period of time.

How would Kings fans judge DT's tenure differently if Allison and Deadmarsh were actually able to play together for 3 - 5 seasons... The Kings have never had a big, skilled forward like Allison. I was hoping Boyle would be that guy, but... oh well (and I realize he's still not that guy w/ NYR)

And did you just use the word "elite" when describing the Kings? HA!
That is a serious lowering of expectations.
