A combination of a laughable archaic system, TM coaching and unwillingness to go into the high scoring areas.

Kopitar needs to be re-wired after spending most of his career with Murray and Sutter. I am with KINGS17 in thinking this summer Kopitar may be moved, if Dean is retained he may just wash his hands of the inconsistent play, and a new regime may like what they could get for him and go forward with Richards and Carter down the middle.

I think a deal involving Vanek and Kopitar, give and take each way could be good for both struggling teams.
