Yeah. I think the proportion of stinkers to solid talent was about the same between the two teams in their respective leagues.
You're not pulling my leg or anything?
The Kings have been, for a significant portion of the Monarchs' existance, a collection of average NHL talent mixed in with a few top scorers
( Palffy, Deader, Allison ) and a lot of filler thanks to injuries.
Their best goalie during this time, prior to Mathieu Garon, has probably been Felix Potvin. Scary thought.
The Monarchs on the other hand have consistently lit up the AHL, while at the same time have had great AHL goaltenders every year, like Scott, Huet, Hauser and Garon.
The Monarchs have won 38, 40, 40, and 51 games in the first four seasons. The Kings, on the other hand, won 40, 33, 28, and then last year was the lockout.
Is this because the Monarchs have consistently iced more talented teams, or because Bruce Boudreau does more with it than Andy Murray?
