The Vancouver Canucks proved that their President's Trophy was no fluke and won the Western Conference.
They made their first Stanley Cup Final appearance since 1994, but just like their loss to the New York Rangers, it sent their city into anarchy.
There will be no flipped cars, burning jerseys or cops resorting to violence this time around because a new team will make their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance in almost two decades.
The retooled Los Angeles Kings squad have the potential to win the whole thing. They added veteran leadership and young, gritty forwards to get the job done.
On defense, they have one of the best duos in the game in Drew Doughty and Jack Johnson.
Their goalie tandem of Jonathan Quick and Jonathan Bernier can save games when need be.
When it comes to the trade deadline, GM Dean Lombardi knows how to pull the trigger on deals that have an effect in the NHL, and history-wise, the LA Kings have a history of making BIG deals, or are we forgetting about a guy named Gretzky?
Either way, the Los Angeles Kings aren't exactly a team you would expect to advance to the Final, considering the new faces, but the ones added know how to get there.
Mike Richards went with Philadelphia in 2010 and Ethan Moreau went with Edmonton in 2006, both in losing causes, but the fact is, they have playoff success, something this team needs to get further.
Prediction: Los Angeles Kings win Clarence S. Campbell Bowl as Western Conference Champions, advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals.
