I'd actually be okay, if Penner didn't resign, if we took a run at Brad Boyes.

Good solid 2nd or 3rd line RW.

Carter can play Left as well as Right. As can Lewis. We have movable parts.

With a hurt Gagne:

Brown - Kopitar - Williams
Carter - Richards - Boyes
King - Stoll - Lewis
Richie/Clune/Cliche/Clifford - Fraz - Nolan

WITH a healthy Gagne

Brown/Gagne - Kopitar - Williams
Gagne/Brown/Carter - Richards - Carter/Brown
Lewis/King - Stoll - Boyes
King/Lewis - Fraz - Nolan

That's honestly as solid of a lineup as we have right now. We give up some size with Penner. Obviously it's not ideal given our style. But if the Kings wanted to go in a different direction..I wouldn't be THAT upset with this.
