Kopitar has been pretty solid for us. He has definitely done more than Carter and Richards, despite their great showing in game 1. What sets Kopitar above and beyond the rest is his two way play. He has been solid in the offensive zone and is dominant along the boards, which has resulted in a lot more chances for us, but he has been godly in the defensive zone. I can think of several plays where he broke up prime scoring opportunities and has been critical at getting the puck out of the zone at key times. Richards is good at this too, though he is slightly more prone to mistakes over Kopitar, but I can think of one really big play where he saved us from a goal last night, but Kopitar overall is just dominant on the backcheck and will always stay with the play and get the job done defensively. Can't ask for much more. He is a Selke caliber player.
