[POLL] Why IS The Kings' Offense Struggling?

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

It's probably a combination of things, but before providing our analysis, we wanted to see what you thought the main reason was for the Kings' recent scoring woes.

It's officially gotten ugly for the Los Angeles Kings. Two goals in four games. A nationally televised shutout at Dodger Stadium. A limp effort yesterday against the Phoenix Coyotes. The Kings simply can't figure out how to put the puck in the net right now.

The best part: everyone is blaming different people! So, we wanted to open the floor for discussion and see what you all thought. Here are some potential factors for the Kings' awful offensive output.
