No, you're right, this team has all the money it needs to do whatever. Excellent reply.

Yeah, it's official, the play-LAers have literally no response to that very real need. They just say it's equally likely we match up well against LA as any other team just because playoffs are hard. Yeah, just like last year, LA played San Jose on the final two days of the regular season to determine which drew Vancouver and which drew the Blues. And there really was no difference in the playoff matchups of those two opponents. Right? Exactly the same. We'd have probably beaten LA in round 1 and gotten steamrolled by the Sharks in round 2. Right? Yeah, excellent argument there. Also who knows how rich an organziation the Blues really are? Evidence for this: none of us own the team and therefore it's unknowable and equally likely they're super flush with cash as they are a budget team. No, seriously, keep it coming, this stuff is gold.
I don't see how it matters much. LA has had our number, but I like our chances in an opening round with our players healthy and ready to go vs meeting the kings in a 2nd or 3rd round matchup, and potentially having some battered players. Then again, LA could be the ones beaten up in the later rounds.

If we could avoid them altogether that would be nice, but if we're destined to duel it out, it probably doesn't really matter which round it is.
