The Los Angeles Kings are a good team that flies under the radar. Not many people picked them to win the Stanley Cup, yet here they are, surviving and thriving. It's surprising given that, well, they're in Hollywood.

This time, we're going with a more localized selection. The Los Angeles Rams also flew under the radar this season, surprising many people by making the postseason. Granted, they were eliminated in the Wild Card weekend. However, the Rams proved they have staying power.

That's what the Kings showed last season, too. Despite falling in six games to the Edmonton Oilers in the Quarterfinals, the Kings showed they're able to compete with the best. That includes Trevor Moore (20 goals), who's having a breakout year similar to Puka Nacua (1,486 receiving yards this season, six touchdowns).
