The Los Angeles Kings have yet to prove themselves on the road and face a Canucks team that has beaten them over the years, but the bottom line is that we’re getting the cheapest price on the team that plays better hockey . . The Kings are playing better than the Canucks right now and comfortably have the more reliable defense. The Vancouver Canucks can’t keep teams from scoring and the Kings continue to show some offensive spark. Give me the Kings and the most favorable price.
