Nothing against Mitchell at all, Kopitar is just that good.

If Kopitar doesn't play, you are forced to use Richards as your #1 center, which he isn't, then since the Kings 3rd line center is not capable of moving up to a scoring role you have to move your 2nd line RW to 2nd line C, which then weakens the skill on the wing, which is one of the few areas of concern with this team.

Kopitar is without question the most important player on the Kings, and very few if any teams around the league rely so much on one guy.
Don't forget moving Brown to the right side where he doesn't play well from.
