Finally.

The start of the season will depend heavily on Quick and how he has recovered, perhaps not only from his injury but from the Cup and the Smythe.

If he can stay close to how he performed last season, it will give the Kings a chance to get rolling. I am a bit uncomfortable about a Stanley Cup hangover and a lockout mixed together to start a shortened season where you pretty much need to be good to great, right out of the gate.

Then again, the Kings are used to have a 6-7 months break form hockey as April has been the standard exit date. And I am very eager to see what Sutter can do with this group of players coming off such a spectacular 2012.

A worldclass G, superb D, elite C depth, and plenty of skill and grit in the organization should eventually lead us to contention one way or the other, assuming of course injuries won't play too great a role in January, February and onwards. Hopefully the Kings style of play will prevent this from having too great of an impact.

Again, finally. Good times in parallel life is back.
