It's going to be risky having only one center capable of winning more than 50% of his draws (Kopitar). Mike Richards is an average faceoff man and neither Trevor Lewis nor Andrei Loktionov are very good on the draw. I guess the Kings could use Carter as a draw man at critical points when Kopitar is resting on the bench.
Actually, all four top centers on the Kings, thru 60 games, have won more than 50%...

From the current NHL faceoff stats link
http://espn.go.com/nhl/statistics/pl...wards/count/41

Center Wins Losses %
Kopitar 636 550 53.6
Stoll 549 466 54.1
Jeff Carter 387 375 50.8
Mike Richards 451 448 50.2
