LA has an incredible looking prospect list now. The top 6 have to be near the top if not at the top compared to the rest of the league. LA may not look nice this season but look into the future and WOW. IF it all pans out, LA will be a serious cup contender for years.
Pittsburgh and Florida are right up there as well... Columbus has some amazing talent coming up through the ranks... Phoenix and San Jose are no slouches either. In fact, based on the rookie tournament, I'll take the Coyotes kids and be quite comfortable. There are a lot of teams actually that can boast future NHL talent in their organizations, but yes, in 2-3 years, with Lombardi's shrewd manouevering, the Kings should compete.
I thought we would be 3-4. Sounds realistic to me at this point. It's been along time before something this good has happened to L.A. and yes, it is great being a Kings fan. Lucky has finally come our way.
