LA's full lineup from four seasons ago looked like this:

O'Sullivan-Kopitar-Brown
Frolov-Armstrong-Cammalleri
Nagy-Handzus-Calder
Ivanans-Willsie-Thornton

Johnson-Blake
Visnovsky-Preissing
Dallman-Harrold

LaBarbera-Ersberg

Scratches: Giuliano, Zeiler, Klemm, Ellis

That atrocious season resulted in a draft that landed Drew Doughty, Viatcheslav Voynov and Andrei Loktionov.
The weird thing is for the top 3 lines, we were arguably better on the wings then than we are now, when healthy.

Those bottom three defensemen are atrocious though, and Johnson was fresh faced, while Blake was milking it for a pay cheque. It's a wonder we didn't give up 5 goals a game.
