Ahh, thanks. I remember the Kings winning the draw, but didn't remember Carter being the center on the play. I simply assumed it was Stoll (bad idea). I do assume then that Stoll was out there in the event Carter was kicked out of the faceoff.

No, Stoll is not very popular. A lot of that has to do with his lack of offensive production as a 2nd line center, then after the Richards acquisition as a 3rd line center.

It's reasonable to question the re-signing of Stoll for 3 years and the amount he received on that contract. He probably would have gotten a similar offer as a UFA though. I think we may very well see a center corps of Kopitar, Carter, Richards, Stoll in the near future, if Toffoli's development supports a move like that.

Fraser has had a very poor start to this season and may not be back in the lineup anytime soon.
