Who cares if Fraser steps up and gets his clock cleaned. We have plenty of guys on this team who can and will answer if someone throws a cheap shot or even a big clean hit (as we saw Muzzin do in SJ)

The days of this team dresssing goons or not playing a promising young player to insert toughness are over.

If DS thinks having Toffoli on line 2 and Penner on line 4 is going to help the Kings score more goals than Phoenix after 60 minutes tonight, he is going to do it, and I trust him.
No offense but that last line makes me want to puke. Kings won the Cup banging bodies on the forecheck and playing physical. The call ups of Nolan and King are considered one of the defining moments of last years team because it brought us back to having big wingers who forecheck like we did with Poni, Zeus, Smyth and Simmonds years before.

Taking out Westgarth, Nolan, Mitchell and Greene and replacing them with Toffoli, Muzzin and Ellerby does not bring that back.
