I'm not sure why people keep posting about him. He's at best a C- prospect that never showed top-6 potential and we don't have a spot on the 3rd line which is what he'd hope to have. I suppose he could have beaten out King this year and yea... I guess he gets to sit around and wonder "what if." Only gets harder next year with King/Loki/Nolan all having NHL experience, Vey figuring things out in the AHL, and TT working his way up from Juniors.

I guess some spots are going to open up on the bottom-6 but who exactly does he beat out?
It's going to be interesting next year. I really think that the Kings have more than enough depth to go out and sign Parise to a big money deal, since I could easily see a bottom 6 like...
Gagne - Loktionov - Moller/Holloway/King
Holloway/King/Clifford - Lewis/Richardson - Nolan

which would not only be very very solid, but talented and dirt cheap. 3rd line is a scoring line obviously, King can be inserted for some extra size to the 3rd or 4th lines. I'd be on board for that. Maybe use a little more size maybe, but with Carter, Brown, Kopitar, Richards in the top 6 as well, we'd still be a fairly big team in general.
