Anyways you never answered the question, you would take the 21 other guys, who aren't nearly as good on the draw over Stoll?
It's not quite that simple.

First off Stoll has played tons of PP time, more than almost every other "2nd line" center in the league.

There are 30 teams in the NHL but that doesn't mean the 60th highest scoring C is a good 2nd liner. There are a lot of bad teams that Jarret Stoll could play 2nd line for, but when it comes to good teams I just don't see it.

Like I said, guy is a lot more likeable as a player now that he is off the PP, but if the Kings are building frm the net our and strong down the middle they need to have Stoll be the answer at 3rd line and not 2nd line. He just doesn't have the creativity and skillset to be that guy. Hopefully Schenn or Loktionov are.

17 Points in pretty much half a season is more than a slump.
