The Los Angeles Kings have had an up-and-down start to the 2013-14 NHL season. They barely pulled out a win against the Minnesota Wild in the season opener and then dropped their next two contests. The Kings turned it around and won three straight, before losing 5-1 to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.
Their success, although limited, is due in large part to the hot starts of both star players and a couple mediocre players who have stepped up their game.
With that in mind, here is a look at which players' hot starts should be bought and which should be sold.
