Originally posted by mountinman44I would have to say the LA Kings are a surprise. With all of their injuries they've had (Allison, Deadmarsh, Palffy, Stumpel, to name a few), they're in second in the Pacific.
... Yeah, they've hung in there pretty well; and at the same time, they've been able to develop a few young guys. The recent trade for Straka adds some depth, and if Allison is able to return and get into game shape by the post-season, the Kings could do some pretty fair damage in the West. I haven't been this optimistic about a Kings' team in about 3 or 4 years.
Cechmanek still makes me nervous, however. Very unorthodox goaltender; makes the easy saves look difficult and the difficult saves look easy.

I prefer not to think like that. It hurts my brain.
They are getting healthy with the return of Stumpel and Palffy last week. Straka is a welcome addition, and Michael Cammeleri is playing some top notch hockey right now. I haven't heard any news on when either Deadmarsh or Allison will return. Deadmarsh is going through the ever-nasty post-concussion syndrome, and the Kings obviously do not want to mess with Allison's neck. There's no need to rush them right now.
