Smyth/Stoll/Brown sounds great in theory but I think Smyth will have more & better scoring opportunities playing with Kopitar. Does Stoll even hit the net?

Handzus 18-24=42pts -7 32PIM 7ppg 1SH 4gwg 2otgoals 54.5 FO%

Stoll 18-23=41pts -7 68PIM 10ppg 0 sh 1gwg 0 otgoals 57.2 FO%

Handzus should be our 2nd line centerman. Played tougher minutes, had lesser linemates, and still racked up a decent amount of points. Upgrade Simmonds to Dustin Brown, slide Frolov in there, and you have a unit that can play against the opposition's top line while being a legit scoring threat.

Which leaves us with this:
Smyth - Kopitar - Williams, with Johnson - Doughty firing bombs from the point.
I like Handzus on 2nd too.
Smyth/Kopitar/Brown
Frolov/Handzus/Williams
XXXXX/Stoll/Simmonds
Clune/Lewis/Moller
