LA Kings -128 Total 5
During the offseason, you could have marked the matchup of Canucks and Kings on your calendar as a Cup contender against a former contender, and you'd still be right -- just not the teams you choose for each label. The Canucks have shocked the hockey world by jumping out to a 10-4 record, while the Kings are mired in .500 hockey. Vancouver comes to the Staples Center on Saturday smelling blood in the water.
Jonathan Quick may have another ten years of a career in front of him, and by the end of that time he could conceivably be remembered as one of the greatest NHL goalies of all time. Not only does he have two rings and a Conn Smythe, he's angling for a Vezina trophy this season with a stellar .943 save percentage; only two goalies league-wide are better at stopping rubber thus far.
Not many people thought that the Ryan Kesler trade was anything but terrible for Vancouver, yet the centerpiece of the return Nick Bonino has outscored the former Selke winner and become the Canucks' go-to goal scorer. Bonino's seven goals lead the team, and 12 points puts him three up on Kesler.
