Dmac,

I basically agree with everything you said. Lewis is fine as a fourth liner, but has been way over used by the Kings.

Stoll is even ok in a fourth line role, the problem is he is paid like and given similar IT to an elite third line player. I agree with your assessment that the Kings would have an extremely hard time moving him because of his laughable contract.

Gagne has been ok, but certainly not a core player.

Williams has been an important part of the Kings since he got here, but he is far from a core player. He is the run of the mill second line winger who has played most of his time here with our best forward. Williams is not a bad player (well maybe some nights) but I certainly wouldn't put him in the core group.

I still think the core of this team is Kopitar, Doughty, Quick, Brown and Mitchell. We go as far as these guys take us. I think it would also be fair to include Carter, Richards, Greene and Voynov going forward. But this team goes as far as those first five names take us, we saw that last spring.
