I keep saying this for a long time already, the Kings do not get any offense from the bottom lines. So now and then you need offense from there, and not only energy/toughness/defensive awareness whatever. Clifford, Lewis, Fraser, Richardson, Nolan, King, Stoll and the whole bunch = zero offense. Now both Mitchel and Greene are out, the Kings can't rely on their defense anymore. Whiskey and Muzzin are nice stop gaps when you are able to net a few goals each game.
Players like Kopitar, Richards, Gagne, Carter, Brown, Williams must provide offense but when a few of them are playing crap, than you dont have to expect any offense from the 3rd or 4th line either.
Clifford is the leading scorer on the team, and he & Nolan have more points combined than Carter & Richards. It would certainly be nice to get more offense from the bottom six, but that is far from the team's biggest problem right now...
