Johnny,

Sutter doesn't care what waste of a roster spot Phoenix is going to throw on their 4th line. The Kings are not going to play that type of game again under DS. Clifford is going to be playing the very limited tough guy role on the Kings. Westgarth was traded because they did him a favor and put him on a team that would play him in the NHL, if he stayed here he would be in Manchester or claimed off waivers.

It's not the 70's, 80's or 90's anymore. DS isn't wasting roster spots for the very overrated toughness, if he feels like Toffoli is a better hockey player, he is going to play him. If Phoenix or anyone else wants to dress a goon squad go right ahead, this team hasn't been intimidated by anyone, and will take advantage by rolling four capable lines.
