The only reason both Ellerby and Schultz were signed was to have insurance in case Mitchell or another defenseman went down. Last season the Kings had to use their 7th and 8th options in the lineup due to injuries. Now they're better prepared if it comes down to that type of situation again. Given their low salary figures, it's fairly evident that those two are fighting to pin down a spot on the roster.

Martinez and Muzzin are competing for the #5-6 spot to determine who plays with Greene on the bottom pairing and who could also see some time on the PP. I'm more confident in Martinez's abilities than Muzzin's tools. Muzzin has the better shot and physical game, but he also lacks composure. Whereas Martinez is the better passer and smarter player, but can get physically intimidated at times.
