The Western Conference is built around big, physical centers. Kopitar has dealt with them all season and all playoffs. I don't see the Devils having centers that have the physical prowess to control Kopitar.
We've heard all playoffs how Pahlsson and Kesler were going to shut him down...then it was Backes and Berglund...then it was Hanzal and Gordon. Hasn't happened yet.
Out of hose listed I think Backes did the best job. Or at least he is the player I would most want on the kings.
