I see it as making a huge splash in the playoff picture and upsetting the top-seeded Red Wings.

Unlike the Oilers, we don't have our core pieces at the end of their contracts.

I didn't do the math, I plagiarized it from here: http://www.sportsclubstats.com/NHL/W...fic/Kings.html

I trust their analysis.

The link doesn't work.

Regardless, 17-11-2 is only .600 if those 2 games are ties and not losses.

It's not winning percentage - it's percentage of possible points earned

36 points (assuming OTL) out of a possible 60 points in 30 games

Without a Stanley Cup and a team breaking apart ???

Serious........

This season was a step back. We are talking about a team with core players
under 25.
It's not that we are on our peak and talking about +- 3-4 points at the end of the season.
This team will get a major 1st round beating if nothing changes dramatically like PP or offense.
Honestly i can't see that.

What i wanna see i a real improvement. An improvement you can see.
I don't care about a stat went up or down by 0.1%
We are not playing damn baseball here.
What is see is a team who isn't playing 2 way hockey and this will not improve
with that coaching staff.

This season isn't over yet.

Also, even if they lose in round one (and they won't get a "beating") this isn't a step back. The team lost Kopitar and Williams, yet are still 8-1-1 in their last ten and have a great shot at not only home ice in the first round but also could still win the division. That's an improvement.

I'd like to see any team lose their top two scorers, both likely out for the first round, and still be a big threat. I know injuries aren't an excuse, but losing Kopitar and Williams is like the Canucks losing the Sedins or the Blackhawks without Kane and Toews. They can still win, but it's a lot harder.

Btw, I also like how you felt the need to reply to the same post twice in this thread. I'd like to see a real improvement in that. An improvement we can see. I don't care it went up one post or not. We are not playing games here. What I see is a poster who isn't posting two sides of an argument, and that won't change as long as you post here.

That's 100% correct, and a testament to the improvement the Kings made from season to season (and the improvement a lot of Western teams made as well).

The Kings may miss the playoff this season. However, it's not going to take a miracle for them to make the playoffs. It's not even completely out of the question that they could still win the division.

We seem to be in such a hurry to define the Kings as either an improved team, or a team in regression. The Kings have to be at point A by year 3, and point B by year 4, and point C by year 5. But the Hawks were here by the 10th minute of the 3rd period of game 36 in the 3rd year. The Penguins were here when they did this or that. Every team is built differently. Different players, different development, different circumstances. Take a breath, relax, and let the season play itself out. We'll see where the Kings stand then.
There's a lot of gold in KingsFan7824's post.

Good news is we have better goaltending, a better bottom 6 and a well rested Captain.
Bingo, bango, bongo. The D is improved overall as well. Another year of experience and Willie Mitchell have helped tremendously.

Actually, I miscounted***.


That other guy's post was counting from 5 games before the first game of my post. Long story short, we'll have to go 3-2-1 to equal last year's point total.


That said, going 3-2-1 is still far, far easier than going 20-7-3.




***Essentially, from the 30-games left mark, we've gone 16-4-4.


Not too shabby!!!

If we we stayed healthy and made it to the Western Conference Finals, the regular season would mean precisely jack ****. The season isn't over after 82 games.

Considering how much tougher the west is this year compared to last, it shows this team has improved, and will continue to get better with the inclusion of Loki/Schenn etc etc in the future.

Dean still wont get credit from so many people though
