10. Los Angeles Kings

Previous: No. 8

Expectation bar: Above

The Pacific is a strange place right now, and the Kings are a solid example of that. They looked old and slow in a couple previous seasons. Now, Anze Kopitar is revitalized offensively and Jonathan Quick is playing well above his norm. Amazing what a little extra oomph from two of your franchise stalwarts can do.
