I don't read TM's response as an excuse. I see it as an answer to a tired question. 'Coach, what kind of brilliant personnel changes are you going to make that will allow you to win 3 straight against the Sharks?'. In all probability, none of Parse, Harrold, Drewiske or Moller have what it takes to propel this team to win 3 straight against the Sharks.
But in the back of Murray's mind you know what he's been thinking since the 4-0 lead slipped away. IF, I had Kopitar, then Handzus and Stoll would be seeing less icetime. IF, I had Kopitar, then I would have somebody that can cover for Penner on the backcheck. IF, I had Kopitar is the answer to a lot a problems the Kings are having. Is TM making an excuse by the mere mention of Kopitar's name? Hardly. Can you blame TM for pining for Kopitar. Heck, no.
