Poll: Which opponent do you want?

As noted earlier, the Kings at this moment still have four potential first-round opponents. If they finish seventh or eighth in the Western Conference, they will face either St. Louis or Vancouver. If they finish third, they will face either Chicago or Detroit. How did the Kings fare against each of these teams this season?

vs. St. Louis — 3-1-0 (one shootout win)
vs. Vancouver — 2-2-0 (one shootout win)
vs. Chicago — 3-1-0 (one shootout win)
vs. Detroit — 1-3-0

Pretty close all around, considering that shootouts don’t take place in the playoffs of course, so it’s hard to say how those regular-season games would have turned out if the teams had continued playing. Who do you want? Remember that facing Chicago or Detroit would mean home-ice advantage, while facing St. Louis or Vancouver would mean starting on the road…
