The current Core of players, have never been world beaters for the regular season.
The Kings have largely been a 500. team since 06-07 (if you include OT losses).
There is nothing wrong with that, 500. teams make the playoff's. And in this instance, can Win a Cup. the Kings proved that.
But I didn't expect the Kings to come out gang busters and mop the floor with teams.
With Mitchell Out I don't expect them to be even 500. Mitchell for some reason is that important.
Yes I remember a lot of the chest thumping over the summer about how this team is going to be unstoppable this year and most of it made me a little uncomfortable. This team generally doesn't win until they absolutely have to (I think Telos said that at some point over the last few seasons). Fortunately, this team has shown that it can heat up at the appropriate times. It may not work out this season but I'd still put my money on this team to make the playoffs.
