Maybe Moller can replace Parse on the third line or perhaps share time there.
Remember, Brown doesn't play LW. So, we can't have both Simmonds and Brown on the same line.
Personally, I would like to add another winger, whether it'd be from FA or trade but adding another top 6 or at very least, top 9 wing would be ideal.
A new trend in the NHL is playing younger/cheaper players with star players to add balance to the lines, that is what I was doing here, much like Ottawa did with Peter Regan playing with Spezza and Alfredsson
If you have Simmonds on the #1 line is really weakens the second line.
Trust me, going through this was painful, the Kings life would be so much easier right now if the Ryan Smyth trade had never been made. Preissing would be coming off the books after next season, we would not have this gaping hole on defense with Quincey and we would have all of the money spent on Smyth to actually use towards Kovalchuk, Doughty, Simmonds and Johnson.
