Look at the Kings team this year. Is this defense really that better than ours?

Drew Doughty - Rob Scuderi
Willie Mitchell - Slava Voynov
Alec Martinez - Matt Greene
Davis Drewiske

Compare that to:

Eric Johnson - Shane O'Brien
Jan Hedja - Ryan O'Bryne
Ryan Wilson - Greg Zanon
Matt Hunwick

I actually think our is deeper and better.

Is Jon Quick that much better than Semyon Varlamov?

Are LA's top two lines better than ours? They are pretty close.

Dustin Brown - Anze Kopitar - Justin Williams
PA Parenteau - Matt Duchene - Milan Hejduk

Dustin Penner - Mike Richards - Jeff Carter
Jamie McGinn - Paul Stastny - David Jones

Is their checking line better than ours? I don't think their 3rd line can come close to ours.

Dwight King - Jarret Stoll - Trevor Lewis/Simon Gagne
Gabriel Landeskog - Ryan O'Reilly - Steve Downie

What about the 4th line? It's pretty close again.

Brad Richardson - Colin Frasor - Jordan Nolan
Cody McLeod - John Mitchell - Marc Olver/Chuck Kobasew

I think this team is ready to contend. If we can somehow manage to sign a vet like Doan to play alongside Duchene and save the rest of our cap money to re-sign our young players when they hit UFA status, we will be in good shape.
