I hate the thought of Kopitar on any other team but I want the Kings to win a friggin playoff round and maybe one day, just one day, a Stanley Cup. Is Kopitar the #1 center that will get the team there? Maybe if Sutter or another coach brings it out of him but the way he is going on his own or under TM, I don't think so. He is too aloof at times. Too many passengers on this team. I'm not saying that trading Kopitar and Brown for Carter and Nash is the right move but it is worth discussing. There is a reason the Kings are in the position they are in and it is largely because the "core" is underachieving big time or are they? Maybe the last 3 seasons is what they are capable of.
