How about they both rock?
Can we live with 2 awesome D-men?
Lob that with the recent Fenwick comparison, where the Kings are first in the league, and this is just a matter of things coming together all at the same time.
at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
it's a Fenwick thing... all those ridiculous metrics are far too atheist for me, and give me a headache. but yeah, the advanced stats indicate that the Kings are the toughest team in the league or something. i KNOW they're first overall in puck possession, and their lead over #2 (funny enough, St. Louis) was pretty handsome last time i looked.
