The people who are picking the Kings to win the Cup this year is because they are basing it on RECENT successful performance. Not from 1986, mind you. Recent.

Not from 1975.

Not from 1967.

Not even from...dare I say...2000.
Ok Ron, I finally get it now. It's actually OK to base predictions on past performance....as long as its RECENT past performance? Cool, my bad.

So, then, Button's assessment back in December of the Kings being SC contenders was pretty spot on based on the previous years performance?
