Why is it that the Kings get no respect, even now that they won the cup in a year in which they were expected to compete? Yes, they were lousy during the regular season and eked into the playoffs. But they won the damn thing -- and did it the hardest way anyone has ever done it. Yet, as I look at the the preseason favorites for the various trophies, division championships, likely cup champs, etc., there are no Kings to be found, except of course Jonathan Quick. What's it going to take to get some respect out there?
Just warming up my rant. Good to be back. Drop the puck!

ESPN has Edmonton pegged at #3 in the current power rankings, who cares? Means nothing.

Vegas has the Kings as one of the top teams so there's that.

I would have torn a then 50-ish year-old Joan Collins up.

Beg pardon? ESPN's "current" power rankings remain the preseason rankings published on September 24, 2012 by Scott Burnside and on October 8, 2012 by Pierre LeBrun. Burnside ranked Edmonton at #24, and LeBrun ranked Edmonton at #25. Does 24/25 now equal 3? Incidentally, in those same rankings, Burnside ranked the Kings #1, and LeBrun ranked them #2.
