11/12 LA Kings
The 2011–12 Los Angeles Kings season was the 45th season (44th season of play) for the National Hockey League franchise. Although they finished the season with 95 points, and the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs, they went on to capture the first Stanley Cup championship in team history
The 1989 San Francisco 49ers season was the team's 44th season in the National Football League. The 49ers franchise cemented their reputation as the best team of the decade. After going 14-2 in the regular season, the 49ers completed the season with the most dominant playoff run in NFL history, outscoring opponents126-26 and winning their fourth Super Bowl victory
Joe Montaneya and the 9ers are just a better team, and had a more overall impressive season, Kings basically rode on Quick's stellar play.
Mark Messier > Jonathan Quick > Joe Montana
Kings had a great playoff run.. but lets not forget they were the 8th seed. regular seasons gotta count for something.
San Fran. takes this one
it does, but they were shit in the first half of the season. A couple trades and a new coach midseason turned that team around. They were 1 point out of 7th and 2 points away from 3rd in the conference. Only 1 team in the NHL allowed less goals
Good chance the 89 Niners make it all the way.
