I for one would rather see a guy with NHL experience if the need arises.
Schultz has 399 games but his play is going the wrong way.

Btw, at 25, Rob Scuderi had 13 NHL games to his credit and didn't play his first full NHL season until he was 28. Some guys bloom late and talking to Manchester fans, they said a lot of good things about Bodnarchuk and said Campbell has progressed a lot over the years. I'm not saying I want either, I haven't seen them myself, but NHL experience doesn't always tell the measure of the tape, especially for stay at home defensemen.

Kopitar

Richards
Carter
Toffoli
Stoll
Frattin
King
Lewis
Clifford
Nolan
Fraser

Defensemen (8):
Doughty
Voynov
Regehr
Mitchell
Greene
Muzzin
Martinez
Schultz

Goalies (2):
Quick
Scrivens
Kings keep 14 forwards, seven D and two goalies under Sutter. Need we forget keeping pressbox Richardson and waiving Hickey?
