Poll: Are the Kings poised to do it again?

Kings celebrate

In one of the most improbable playoff runs ever, the Los Angeles Kings are the 2012 Stanley Cup champions.

The Kings captured Lord Stanley’s mug in impressive fashion. As an eighth seed, they went a combined 16-4 through four rounds, knocking off the West’s top three seeds (Vancouver, St. Louis and Phoenix) in the process.

But hey, that was minutes ago. Let’s start looking to the future!

Next season, the Kings essentially return all the key components from this cup run. Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter are locked up long term and it’s expected GM Dean Lombardi will soon begin work on extending the contract of Conn Smythe winner Jonathan Quick.

The team seemed to find its groove under head coach Darryl Sutter and have become one of the most dominant Cup winners of all time.

So, we ask…are the Kings poised to repeat as Cup champs?

Vote in our poll and let us know.

    As a Kings fan and season ticket holder I hope they make another run again. The Kings had an awesome run during the postseason. A hot streak during the postseason tends to be overvalued. Realistically this team lost more than they won during the regular season. They are closer to missing the playoffs than being an elite team.

      lol hot streak, yea right…if you consider getting calls for flops and non calls for obvious dirty plays on that turd brown….hope he learns how to box over the summer lol, cause a few teams are going to remember said cheap shots come next season.

    Honestly looking at a team that seemed to find its identity in the playoffs and go all the way i think this teams got another one in them. They got a lights out goalie who is top 3 in the nhl all day and top 2 lines that are as good as any other team. So why wouldnt they win another one? They are a contender for atleast 3 more years.

    Ha, only if they get the same refs as they did against the Coyotes and Devils in that last game…
