Although I certainly don't disagree that the Kings could use more speedy forwards. Carter, Lewis, Richardson are probably the fastest skaters on the roster. Williams and Richards aren't very fast, neither is King, but the worst skater on the team has to be Dustin Penner. He's got a slow and plodding style and takes wide turns (which also causes him to lose his balance a lot).
Agreed, which even though they wouldn't trade Williams for specific reasons that Voracek for Williams thread I'd have a long hard look at it if I was the Kings, Voracek can flat out skate and has good puck skills as well.
