8. Los Angeles Kings

Previous: No. 3

While they have had a bit of a slide recently, the Kings still sit near the top of the league in points and have a very balanced roster. Jonathan Quick has been playing well in net all year, and the usual names like Anze Kopitar, Tyler Toffoli, Drew Doughty and Jake Muzzin are contributing all over the ice.

Maybe the biggest surprise has been Dustin Brown, who had 18 points in the first 19 games this year. Brown has averaged only 29.4 points a year over the last five seasons, but is well on his way to blowing past that average this season.
