Compare that to the Kings who have lost their 3 best offensive players with having a major fall-off with the 4-6 guys. Add in their blueline is beset with injuries as well, while the Av's blueline is in relatively great shape.

I think the other thing to consider is who has been lost for the Av's. Losing guys like Hahl, Worrell & Svatos doesn't hurts as much as those guys weren't counted on to be major contributors.
couldn't agree more... Kings top line last night was Belanger (3rd liner) -Brown (19 yo) - Frolov (having a nice season but isn't a first liner yet). Then Belanger had to leave the game after an awful high stick (which was blatant -- unintentional, but blatant) and went uncalled I might add. The hits just keep on comin'...
