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.
What? The Kings wouldn't have made the playoffs without Smyth and everyone would be screaming for DL to be fired. The loss of Smyth was a huge reason why Kopitar tapered off.
