Enough centers where he's not expected to play a huge offensive role, gets some power play time, important for face-offs and the penalty kill.
Fraser was better than most people expected after last summer's fiasco
. I do love the depth that the Kings have with guys that can play center in Kopitar, Richards, Carter, apparently Stoll and Fraser, as well as Lewis. All defensively responsible and can contribute on the pk. I do feel bad for Loktionov though.
I think he was a surprise because all we heard about was how terrible he was and how a SC contender would never have a player of his caliber on their roster.
