Video- Season Preview For The Los Angeles Kings

from Brett Amadon of NHL.com,

The Los Angeles Kings are out to prove last season was an aberration.

After finishing next to last in the NHL with 71 points, their fewest in a full season since they had 68 in 2006-07, the Kings hired Todd McLellan as coach April 16 to replace Willie Desjardins, who took over after John Stevens was fired following a 4-8-1 start in his second season.

"I thought our team was not used to losing," Kings assistant Marco Sturm said. "I think last year, it caught them maybe a little bit off guard … and that's why we just couldn't get out of the hole and all of a sudden, the season was over. So I think it's going to be a totally different mindset this season for sure."


Below, watch the season preview on the Kings...

Same here.  I don’t think they’re quite as bad as they were last year, but getting 80-85 points I think is reasonable for them.  Really hoping that Kopitar and Doughty don’t repeat their terrible years.
