    Default Another bold prediction

    Well, having predicted that Dustin Brown was done (Brown - 15G; McDavid, Crosby, Malkin - 14G) and having predicted after a particularly dispiriting loss in December of 2011 that the Kings would absolutely NOT make the playoffs, I think it is time for another prediction:

    The Kings have NO CHANCE to win the Cup this season.

    That is all.

    I like the way you think! I didn't realize that Brown had more goals than Crosby, Malkin, or McDavid. Wow! He deserves the Masterson Trophy hands down. Talk about perseverance the past few years.

    That might go to Glass over in Chicago. 32 year old rookie goaltender. That is, if he can keep up what he's doing.

    I think they will be far less scary in a 7 game series. Kinda like Columbus last season.

    I would think Quick would be in that conversation too. Lot of people were predicting the demise of his career after last year's injury.

    Until proven otherwise, VEGAS scary! IMHO the reason Vegas is doing so well is because they are composed of a ton of B- to A- players that other teams wouldn't be able to afford due to FA or RFA contracts...ie; Marshaseau (spelling) Neal and Mac Andre Fleury in addition to picking up players cheap that are playing well above their expected potential ie; Houla and Karrlson. So in short, minus a long-term chemistry, they are bound together with skill that is definitely clicking.

    At the end of the day, I do still believe they are a major threat because they have proven to be able to beat the top tier teams like LA, TBL, Hawks, STL and at the time of trending upwards, Leafs in tough stretches...so extrapolating, I believe they could beat a contender in best of 7 because ALL Teams scout Vegas, but you just can't stop SPEED and SKILL! Barring injuries and major drop off, Vegas (this season ONLY) is looking like the biggest Hockey Cinderella story of the century, since the 1980 Team USA feat vs Russia. Next year, I expect growing pains as I expect them to lose some key players to the cap, plus they have tons of draft picks coming into the system too.

    My argument that VGK are not COLUMBUS of last year is due to the fact they are stacked full of B- to A- caliber players. Throughout their 4 lines they aren't playing at a C level. Columbus on the other hand had a tremendous drop off after the first 2 lines, much like the Kings.
