If I were TM, I'd be putting threads like this one up in the Kings dressing room. Seriously, Kopitar is not the team. I'm as sick as everybody else is about him getting a broken ankle, and yes, it seriously hurts our playoff chances, but there are 20 odd legitimate NHLers in that room who can win hockey games. Two of them--Bernier and Quck--can outright steal them. The team will score by committee and grind out wins. Now's the time for the guys to get a big chip on their shoulders. If I'm Brown, Smyth, Greene or any of the other leaders in that room I'm starting to think "Our own fans don't think we can win without Kopitar? We'll show them." Look for a bunch of grinding, 2-1, 3-2 wins down the stretch. I don't know how far we'll go in the playoffs without the star power in a seven game series, but then again, Doughty and Johnson become different people once the playoffs start. This is the one time when the system becomes our friend.
