Those teams were pretty exciting. The Deadmarsh/Allison/Palffy line was dominant but short lived. The 4th year team injuries were to much to overcome. And of course 5th year Palffy was off to a great start and then the stick pulling incident and he was out for the year and never played for the Kings again. That was also the year of the crazy 11 game losing streak at the end of the season
I don't agree that they were some of the better Kings teams. They won 1 playoff series by riding a hot goalie against a crippled Detroit team.
They had little to no depth and that depth got worse when they tried to replace Luc with Heinze, and Stumpel and Murray with Allison and the missing top 6 forward was never replaced.

I do agree that the 00-01 playoff run was exciting, but those teams were never serious cup contenders and if you compare our current team to those, you'll see how far off we really were
