Los Angeles Kings: The Next NHL Dynasty?
The win caps a dominating run to the Finals, which was one of the best postseason performances in league history. As is the case with any team, in any sport, the focus now shifts to whether or not they can do it again. We’ve seen teams like the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks carry the ‘dynasty’ label after they won their respective Cups, but nothing came of it.
You’re going to see the same thing with the Kings, but it is still deserved. There is so much young talent on this team, starting with Jonathan Quick. The best goaltender in the National Hockey League won the Conn Smythe and could end up taking home the Vezina as well.
Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown are the young leaders of a forward group that also includes big names like Mike Richards and Jeff Carter. The entire defense, led by Drew Doughty, will be back in 2012-2013.
They may not repeat, but this is a team I expect to make another serious Cup run within the next couple of seasons.
