This is ESPN's predicitons

But yes. They were a marginal tem and people who work for subcribers and write for a living didn't think that LA was for real. Now is ESPN, the Hockey News or the Hockey Writers the end all be all? No. It's not. In fact, sometimes, I find their analysis simple and stupid. But when you have a theme of people picking LA to finish in the top 3 or 4 of a conference, and people picking them for the Cup, you have to understand they were one of the early favorites.
Oh and here are some of the odd lines from Las Vegas
They were 10th. Just 2 points behind the Hawks, the previous year's champs.
