This x1000000. Look no further than the start of this past season to prove that point.

The Kings bottom 6 was arguably the worst in the league, it had three guys who had no business being on NHL rosters in Moreau, Hunter and Westgarth and they dragged down some of the decent bottom line guys we had in Lewis and Stoll, the bottom lines only recovered when King and Nolan replaced Moreau and Hunter, Fraser got healthy and Sutter was brought in and knew how to use them. Having even one guy like Clune, Moreau, Westgarth etc. can destroy an entire line, especially with the way Sutter likes to roll all four lines.

As long as Darryl Sutter is coaching this team don't expect to plug the bottom lines with goons like Westgarth or Ivanans, side shows like Clune the Clown or washed up veteran slugs like Moreau.

Just think Ivanans, Clune and Westgarth actually played playoff games under TM. Amazing how far we have come.
