I also remember the game when Anze went down. When the Kings were visibly shaken, Lewis was the one who tried to make things happen. He had 8 points that season until then, then got 9 points in the last 14 games of the season (incl. playoffs).

I would have to think long and hard before I included him in a trade, and as good as Clutterbuck is I'm not so sure he is an upgrade over the Lewis we see in the big games. That would be a tough trade to make.
Lewis made the biggest play in the most important game in the playoffs this year, which was the most important game Kings history since 1993. And now, since we won the Cup this playoffs, that game may be the most important one in Kings history.
