LA Kings Roundtable – Stanley Cup Conteners in 2012?

On the eve of the NHL’s post-season coming to end, there are still two open questions – who will win the Stanley Cup this year, Boston or Vancouver?

And what about the Kings?

For more on that second one, the guys over at KingsCast pulled together a panel, consisting of people like Dennis Bernstein of The 4th Period, Jon Moncrief of the Examiner and Dave Joseph of ESPN to help explore the issue.

Over the last few weeks several videos have been posted on various topics surrounding the Kings past, present and future. Below is the final installment – where we talk in-depth about the players, attitude and philosophy needed for the LA Kings to become Stanley Cup contenders next season.

Some of the conversation centers around Willie Mitchell vs. Chris Pronger, who will win the Pacific Division, can the Kings challenge for one of the top spots in the Western Conference and much more.

If you haven’t been keeping up with the whole series, here’s a recap with links:

Part one – discussion on Drew Doughty

Part two – discussion on the power play and prospects

Part three – lots of talk on free agents, trade rumors, Kopitar, Bernier, Penner, etc.

Part four – focus on coaching and Johnson vs. Doughty

Part five – debating player contracts and roster changes
