Pierre McGuire's In the Crease

Here's a surprise: The Kings have become a must-watch team, playing skilled, energetic and intelligent hockey under their first-year coach, Terry Murray. Defenseman Drew Doughty (right), the league's best rookie, can control the tempo of a game, play rock-solid defense and make shrewd offensive decisions on the power play. He's a combination of Ray Bourque and Denis Potvin.... The Canadiens better wake up when it comes to dealing with potential unrestricted free-agent defenseman Mike Komisarek.

Rival G.M.'s are salivating.
