While Drew's out, I would prefer both Muzzin and Harrold to be in the lineup over Drewiske. Muzzin and Harrold are both better offensively. That way we have 3 offensive minded defenseman(JJ,Muzzin,Harrold), and 3 defensive minded defenseman (Mitchell,Scuderi,Greene). We roll these lines till Doughty is back.

Johnson-Scuderi
Mitchell-Harrold
Muzzin-Greene

I prefer seeing Harrold in the pressbox.

... In the games he's played, Harrold has done a fine job. Harrold's played 29 minutes and change at even strength so far; and in that time, the Kings have had 15 shots on goal and given up 8 shots on goal.

The Kings haven't given up a goal while Harrold's been on the ice, even strength or otherwise.

Compare those numbers to Muzzin's. Muzzin has played about 70 and a half minutes at even strength, during which time the Kings have had 25 shots on goal and given up 37 shots on goal.

Click here for the numbers.

With the return of Greene and a big four of Johnson-Mitchell-Scuderi-Greene, I can certainly live with what Harrold has done for the Kings at this point. I see no problem with him getting a regular shift until Doughty's able to return.

Trust me, I've played the game at a high level and if you don't think intimidation (trash talk, cheap shots, fighting etc) has anything to do with winning a hockey game, you are sadly mistaken sir. You should download the recent ESPN documentary about the Broad Street Bullies. Guess what, they won 2 Cups, how many do we have?

I just don't want him rushed back. Take your time, sort out whatever needs to be sorted out and come back healthy.

... The Flyers of those two seasons had the best goaltender in the NHL, Bernie Parent. In '74, they had 4 30-goal scorers, in '75 they had a 40-goal scorer and two others above 30. They had excellent special teams. In '74, they were 3rd in the NHL on the PP and 1st on the PK. In '75, they were 5th on the PP and 2nd on the PK. They won for a lot of reasons.

Beyond that, all enforcers aren't created equal. Dave Schultz, the Flyers' main enforcer, scored 20 goals in '74. Another one, Don Saleski, had 15. Another one, the "Moose" Andre Dupont, had 11 goals in '75 as a defenseman. Those guys had ice time because, in addition to intimidating the opposition, they could also play. Big difference.

I think it's more appropriate to look at teams who have won Cups recently, than those who won them 35 or more years ago. If you look at the last two Cup winners, their team's penalty minute LEADERS had 120 PIM each. Who was enforcing for them? How could they win, if intimidating the opposition meant so much to success? And besides that, how many times did you see enforcers dealt away all over the league? The Joe Kocurs, the Stu Grimsons, the Tie Domis ... all of them played on multiple teams - why? If they were such an important part of winning, why would teams ever let them go? Hell, Grimson was left unprotected in an expansion draft! How could that even happen?

And, beyond all this, you're misunderstanding me. If two guys square off and fight, there's nothing cheap about that. But the fact of life is that the league views fighting differently now than they did in '74 and '75. I don't like the fight instigator rule and I've found no one who does, personally. But the fact of the matter is that the rule is there. Blame the NHL for that.

What I always have said is that trash talk, cheap shots, scrums - THAT's all cheap. In my experience playing, and granted I didn't play at a high level - but from what I've seen, the cheap stuff doesn't serve to intimidate at all, and in many cases it can be counter-productive and inspire the opposition. And, I've seen that at the NHL level as well. Give me a guy who will make a good hard hit, like Mark Hardy on Mike Keane in the '93 SCF. THAT's inspiring. THAT gets the team going. And there's nothing cheap about it.

Am I the only one really nervous about this concussion? Bad memories involving Kings players and concussions.

Deadmarsh was my favorite player since his Colorado days. Always hated the way his career ended. That guy was all kinds of awesome.

You are not alone in that regard. Concussions worry me.

Well that sucks. Once a player gets that concussion rep. you might as well paint a big target on his back. Especially when its an offensive threat like Drew, teams will be finishing their checks against Doughty to say the least. I hope DL and TM address the team as a whole as well as take the neccessary precautions to protect Drew in the future.

I trust Dean to handle these types of injuries correctly. I don't think the Kings are any rush to get Doughty back on the ice. We're currently 6-2 and somehow finding ways to win. I like where we are at, and when Doughty comes back, he will be 100 percent.

I've heard around some forums and blogs that Drew Doughty is actually recovering from another nagging injury he had earlier on. Is that just a rumor?
