    You play the regular season to accumulate points to have better seeding in the playoffs. That's how the league determines which teams are better. When was the last time the Kings finished better than the Ducks? Go ahead, it will take some time to research that. Advantage: Anaheim.

    Playoff success? The Kings have won one game in four seasons since last winning the Cup. Over that same time frame Anaheim has made the playoffs each year, been to two Conference Finals and won 23 more playoff games. Advantage: Ducks

    The Ducks have better young talent on the roster now and a far deeper reserve list without question. Doesn't take much, as the Kings are among the very worst in the league in this category. Advantage Ducks

    The Ducks have a better cap position, though they don't spend the same as the Kings, yet somehow always seem to finish better. The Kings can spend more, which should be an advantage, but based on that can anyone say they have actually do have an advantage given the lack of return on the contracts they have?

    The Ducks are better acclimated for the modern game, especially on defense and the wings which are increasingly becoming priorities in the NHL. The Kings best players had career best or career reviving years, where the Ducks best players didn't, especially Perry - and they still finished better.

    The rest is window dressing. You say "if the Kings had five more points" like that actually matters. "If" means nothing. It didn't happen. What did happen is that both teams were blown out, yet for some homertastic reason it appears you need to sooth yourself by falsely claiming that a rival, who is superior by every conceivable category that matters, might somehow be "lousier" than the Kings. It's ridiculous to make that argument.
    Not cool to call someone else's point of view "laughable, hogwash". Especially when it's not. I'm sure the mods will pay you a visit.

    Your opinion is no more valuable or correct than any others on this board.

    Please, just stop with your self-righteous talk.
    Who the hell are you to tell people what they can and cannot say.

    It's a message board for crying out loud!

    If the words "hogwash" and "laughable" bother you, just leave the internet entirely.

    Don't look now, but I just baited you into overrating the Ducks, and you ate that **** right off the line. How's that taste? You've got the CalTrans crew ready to win the Cup next season! What a knowledgeable, impartial analyst you are.

    And now, you've been reduced to name calling because you can't win an argument on merit that you should never have started. Try to watch a few more games next season, even though we all know it hurts deeply for as big a fan as you when the Kings aren't doing well.
