He's really spreading those lines. Looks like Loktionov will be back in Manchester soon with Richards due back.

Cruel11 12-21-2011 12:50 PM

Looks like Kompon is staying.....yayy.

Forget the lines, WTF is this? "The Kings are on the ice this morning with new coach Darryl Sutter, and still with assistant coaches John Stevens, Jamie Kompon and Bill Ranford."

MynameisKing 12-21-2011 12:51 PM

I kind of like those lines. The top 2 lines at least have some speed with Richardson and Lewis. I guess DS is going with the Kopitar-Brown chemistry and the Gagner-Richards chemistry for the O. The Penner-Stoll-Williams line has been our best line the last few games. I think the fourth line is just a mish mash of whoever.

Josh Deitell 12-21-2011 12:52 PM

Stevens is the only coach that's definitely being kept thru the end of the season. The rest of the staff is being evaluated.

CTKingsFan 12-21-2011 12:53 PM

According to Jim Fox (via Twitter) defense is


Scurderi - Doughty
Mitchell - Voynov
Greene - Johnson
Drewiske - Martinez

Shellz 12-21-2011 01:02 PM

So weird to have a new coach. Can't really evaluate him yet. I just hope he has more patience with the lines then Murray did.

This is your guess or you have read that somewhere? It would be great if the coaching staff (Kompon) is evaluated as well, not only players.

BigBrown 12-21-2011 01:06 PM

Wow, somehow we no longer have a horrible third line :laugh:

It would be really, really nice if this could jumpstart some offense from Richardson and Lewis. Let's hope they can pull their weight on scoring lines.

hauspaint 12-21-2011 01:18 PM

Kurri's dream finally came true with Richardson on top line. :)

28kings28 12-21-2011 01:18 PM

I really like these lines since he's spreading the skilll and speed to all of the lines. Man, I hope Kompon gets let go soon, I don't know how he still has a job.

TwoForRoughing 12-21-2011 01:20 PM

I like it. I always thought Richy and Lewis deserved another chance in the top 6. Both have great speed, although Lewis can't hit the net for his life.

Jason Lewis 12-21-2011 01:21 PM

Loving these lines.

Adding the speed to the 1st and 2nd with Lewis and RIchardson...really good stuff. Guys who can get in and get on the forecheck quickly.


Really looking forward to what Lewy can contribute in an offensive role rather then....well how Murray used him...4th line and press box only.

KINGS17 12-21-2011 01:27 PM

Richardson, Lewis and Voynov are going to get a chance to impress. Do something with it boys.

Jason Lewis 12-21-2011 01:34 PM

The more I think about it...you can really see the formula here...and it's one that worked in Calgary.


on the top two lines you have a skill guy, a grit player, and speed.

Lewis, Richie (speed)
Rick, Brownie (Grit and skill)
Kopi, Gagne (skill)



when you look at the top line Calgary had for a couple seasons under Sutter...

Gelinas - Conroy - Iginla

Speed - Skill - Skill/Size/Grit

Johnny Utah 12-21-2011 01:49 PM

Sutter is obviously injecting and trying to spread the speed.

Better dress Westgarth against the Ducks, they just added Pelley and Parros is back.

AKAY47 12-21-2011 01:49 PM

Omg.. I already love Sutter. Trevor Lewis on the 2nd line? beautiful

Fat Elvis 12-21-2011 01:51 PM

I can see Ranford and Stevens being kept on board.

I was thinking the same thing. Sutter is trying to utilize speed throughout the lineup, he wants the puck to be moved faster, a quicker forecheck, and better skating through the neutral zone. Should be interesting. All depends on how he utilizes them. I'll turn a blind eye to the lines for a few games as he gets adjusted to things. Good to have him on board. Remember, this is what we all wanted...

I also agree, Westgarth needs to be in the lineup.

Getting Richards back should be huge for it. Hopefully he gives us something to rally around and get going with our comeback.

Yea it's an approach that we haven't had on the top two lines in a while. Speed. last time i can remember that was Simmer/Richie with Kopi for stints two seasons ago..and they looked good for periods of time.

That was my first thought as well. :laugh:

DryIslandBartender 12-21-2011 02:01 PM

Personally, I think Sutter should flip Brown and Williams.

Without Brown there is no physical presence on the 1st line.
