... And I can't wait to watch it! Oh wait, am I breaking some kind of law here
Simmonds has 1 goal and 3 points in March, Smyth has 1 goal and 5 points. Again, why does Simmonds deserve to be in the top 6?

Since Moller has been up, he has 1 assist, is a +2 and 10 shots. Simmonds has zero points, is a minus 2 and 4 shots. Kings are 3-0 with Moller on the "1st" line. Again, which RW is Simmonds out performing? Westgarth?

Maybe Simmonds is more "valuable" in his current role than trying to be Moller?

So, JDM gives you 10 games in a row and you pick out the last 3 games to prove your point? Isn't that sample size too small? The last three games with Moller and Lewis in their current roles are out performing Simmonds. Maybe Simmonds got more ice time in those final three games because he actually did something?
