LAK are the best puck possession team in the NHL. That would be a brutal series for the Hawks and is, at best, a coin flip as to who wins.
This is true, but its not by a lot (assuming Fenwick Close). Once Quick started to play better after the deadline, their play dropped off dramatically (in terms of puck possession) and has not been good at all in the playoffs, minus one game. The Hawks after the deadline (and not coincidentally when Bolland missed time) were playing at a historic possession pace for the last month, and have carried that somewhat into the playoffs. There's a pretty solid argument to be made to be made the Hawks are now a superior possession team. However, Jonathan Quick exists, and that would pose a problem. Also Stoll's health is huge for the Kings
