It is nice to be talking about a full lineup of NHL quality players who can contribute.

One of my favorite things about Sutter over Murray is that we no longer have to watch players like Westgarth, Ivanans, Clune etc. taking regular shifts. The goon is dying and it's great for hockey. Sure we still have wastes like Penner and Stoll, but really it's not fair, there is no way anyone could have predicted just how terrible they would be.

Next season with Penner and Stoll moving on and the large amount of cap space freed up the Kings should be able to roll 4 lines for the first time since the 2001 playoffs.

I think the Top 6 may stay the same with the possible exception of improving Williams or Brown. Not saying it will be Parise, but one of the lesser guys, maybe a finisher for Kopitar.

FA - Kopitar - Brown
King - Richards - Carter
Gagne - Loktionov - Williams
Clifford - Fraser/Cliche/Lewis - Nolan
