This season we have 6 guys who belong in top 6 roles.

I think Parse should be battling with Richardson for the 3rd line RW spot. The people that say he can't play in that role are out to lunch because thats not going to be a defensive unit with Clifford and Stoll who will never be mistaken for Jere Lehtinen and Guy Carboneau. The Kings aint sending Stoll out there against Thornton and Getzlaf. This will be an energy line and Parse should fit in very well there, and he has had chemistry with Stoll before. Both will be capable of scoring but not expected and counted on to score like they were last season.

Penner - Kopitar - Williams
Gagne - Richards - Brown
Clifford - Stoll - Parse/Richy
Parse/Richy - Lewis - Westgarth
