    Default 2013 Kings - Hawks Labeled best series

    https://www.yahoo.com/sports/nhl-pow...162620739.html

    Disagree? What other series ranks better?

    Yep Kings and Hawks is the best series of the decade no doubt.. I'd replace the Sharks series with the Blues/Stars WC semi from last year IMO.

    I think it's the best playoff series since the Miracle, but if you ranked Kings all time playoff series, probably three of the top five are from 2014. Quick ranking from while I've been alive:

    1) Hawks - 2014
    2) Oilers - 1982
    3) Leafs - 1993
    4) Sharks - 2014
    5) Ducks - 2014
    6)) Oilers - 1989
    7) Red Wings - 2001
    8) Sharks - 2013
    9) Flames - 1993
    10) Devils - 2012

    I'm willing to have this list torn to shreds though.

    It was actually the 2014 Kings Blackhawks series that was the best. No argument here. The 2013 Kings Blackhawks WCF was like an appetizer to the 2014 feast.

    This is a good top ten ChiKingFan. I may swap the Flames 90' w/ the 93' but can't argue it.

    Here's some honorable mentions:

    Oilers: 1989
    Nucks: 1993
    Blues: 2013
    Ducks: 2014

    Everyone one has their own thing. My all-time favorite series was probably 2014 vs. the Ducks....although I might say that was due to game 7 since that's my all-time favorite game. Being from OC myself and kicking their ass was unforgettable.

    Some series that were pretty great even though the Kings lost were probably 1991 vs. EDM and 1976 vs. Boston. The one series that might have the largest "butter fly" effect (after losing) was the 1975 vs. Toronto.

    Whatever the case, your list is pretty good...

    I think it was just semantics on the OP...was the 13-14 season but the series was played in 2014. I would agree, best hockey I've ever watched and most abuse my liver has taken. Kings-Ducks 2014 would be next on the list followed by Kings-Sharts 2014.
