The problem with Purcell is that I can't see him beating out Brown or Williams for a top-6 right wing spot. What is wrong with having a potent 4th line? If Purcell played left wing, I could see something like this...

Purcell-Kopitar-Williams
Smyth-Stoll-Brown
Frolov-Handzus-Simmonds
Moller-Lewis-xxx

The Kings could potentially have no "top" lines, just three very even lines that can do a lot of damage. The fourth line could consist of pesky players, high energy, whatever TM wants to roll.

Ideally, I would want our lines to look like this.

Frolov-Kopitar-Williams
Smyth-Moller-Brown
Stoll-Handzus-Simmonds (Stoll and Handzus switch taking faceoffs on their bad sides)

It is interesting, the Kings have Brandon Segal, John Zeiler, Brad Richardson, and Corey Elkins listed on the official roster.

Also, if Drewiske switched from #44 to #4, our defense would have jersey numbers of...
02 - Matt Greene
03 - Jack Johnson
04 - Davis Drewiske
05 - Peter Harrold
06 - Sean O'Donnell
07 - Rob Scuderi
08 - Drew Doughty

Sweet.

Also, the two biggest question marks I see for the '09-'10 Kings team is the fourth line and a 3rd line left wing.
