I like Frolov on the 3rd line. That line gets alot of minutes against the opposition top line. Frolov and Simmonds are good on the counterattack. This line will also be bery good at getting the puck in the offensive zone and keeping it there so the opposition's top line doesn't get much time in our zone.

When we get to do the matchups at home they will see more time than line 2 on alot of nights.

Williams has been on the point on the PP in the pre-season.

I have a feeling he is back there simulating being Stoll for the time being, but you know Frolov is in the mix somewhere on the power play. Given our dmen at this point I wouldn't be surprised to see the PP look like this...

Frolov/Kopitar/Smith
Williams/JJ

Purcell/Handzus/Brown
Stoll/Doughty

or...

Williams/Kopitar/Smith
Stoll/JJ

Frolov/Zus/Brown
Doughty/??

Purcell is at his best on the PP. So I don't know about option 2.

Everyone else ok with 4 forwards on both PP's?
