Recap – When it comes to the NHL there are some good teams, and some bad teams. The LA Kings are a bad team, a really, really bad team. Through 50 games, LA has only accrued 19 wins and 40 total points. Those are the lowest totals in the entire NHL. Defense is not the team’s strongpoint, not that they have a strongpoint, but they have allowed 168 goals which is the 2nd highest in the league. The Gretzky days are only a distant memory now and attendance is at an all time low. This franchise is in serious trouble and the ownership needs to decide if they really want to stay in LA for much longer.
2nd Half – Even a miracle would not give this team a playoff birth. The Kinds used 4 goaltenders in the first half of the season and none were effective. At 23 years old, left-wingman Dustin Brown has a bright future ahead of him and right now he’s merely playing for his next contract. With 24 goals and 15 assists, someone will save him from his misery in LA.
Team Name: Los Angeles Kings (19-29-2)
Pacific Division Standing: 5th place
Conference Standing: 15th place
Final Predictions – 5th in Pacific Division, 15th in Western Conference
