10 Offseason Questions Still Facing the Los Angeles Kings

The Los Angeles Kings have gone from a poorly-managed, disappointing team to a bona fide contender. Their young core of Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, Drew Doughty, and Jack Johnson are a great foundation to build upon. Kopitar had 34 goals and 81 points last year and looks like he could be a consistent 30-goal player if he stays healthy during his time in LA. The youngest captain in Kings history, Brown is a chippy American player who has a great locker room presence. He has had 24 goals in the last two seasons and will look to replicate the 33-goal season he had in 2007. Both Doughty and Johnson were Olympians and are comparable to what Nashville has in Shea Weber and Ryan Suter—a young, outstanding defensive pair.Begin Slideshow
