Yeah, he's good at it but I think he's really being under-utilized and that playing with a winger like Hemsky would be ideal (not sure the Kings and Oilers would trade now). Leave Brown as the other winger and JW and Gagne as the second line wings.

Then, we need grit AND speed on the bottom six, not just size. Getting rid of Moreau was a good first step, but Stoll and/or Penner should be traded for a Clutterbuck "type" player. Leave Richardson as the third line center and Lewis on the fourth line.

Moller should be here and playing. Who cares if he takes a few hits? Visnovsky got killed his first few years but he played through it to develop into a heck of a defenseman.

Stepping off my soapbox now.
Where does Moller fit?

Gagne - Kopitar - Hemsky
Brown - Richards - Williams
Moller? - Richardson - Clutterbuck
Clifford - Lewis - Fraser
