Acknowledging that they are our top forward and defenceman, IMO too much emphasis is put on Doughty and Kopitar. They are a very big part of our team but they're not the whole team nor are they the only ones that produce offensively and defencively. I'm not, in any way, taking away from their importance to the team but they are tiring with the big minutes which is keeping them from be as effective as they could be. The team wins and the team loses.
Toews has Kane, Kopitar has ______

Ovechkin has Backstrom and Semin, Kopitar has ______

Crosby has Malkin, Kopitar has _____

Datsyuk has Zetterberg, Kopitar has ______

I think you guys get the point, we need an actual 2nd line center, it may be Brayden Schenn, but that won't be known until next season. We need a linemate for Kopitar and Wayne Simmonds isn't a 1st liner.

We better sign Kovalchuk
