Neither the Bruins nor the Kings have overwhelming forward talent in their top-6, though their top-6s are certainly quality. But it's been the quality of play from their bottom-6s that have set them apart.

Right now, we're top heavy. Hopefully, over the course of the season, the situation with the bottom-6 works itself out on its own. We have the parts now. If they gel, we'll be in great shape.
