I’m tired of trying o figure out the Kings right now. Sure, this is a team that we made some coin on early this year, but now the Kings are starting to look like the Kings I expected to see all along, a team that appears to be in rebuild mode and is just struggling along throughout the season. Vegas on the other hand is rolling right now and is not a team I’m looking to step in front of right now. Give me Vegas on the puck line to shave down this hefty money line price.
