The Los Angeles Kings have won two Stanley Cup titles in the past three seasons, but they haven't had strong regular seasons in any of the past three years.
To make defending their championship an easier task, the Kings need to win their division and gain home-ice advantage for the first two rounds of the playoffs.
Players like Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter and Drew Doughty will be playing at a high level as they have throughout their careers. There is however, room for improvement among a group of players.
This includes a veteran who struggled last season and youngsters who didn't play the full season. This is a look at who the Kings' most improved players should be in 2014-15.
