This. Moller is not an NHL player.

I thought Moller played pretty well in the last two games of the season, especially the last one. He should've had a hat trick.

I'm sure if you watched the game you'd see the same thing. Those three shots were beauty chances.

Tony, I prefer to spread my incredible posts around. I need to do that if I want to have as many posts as you.

I did watch it.

To say he should have had a hatty is a stretch to say the least.

He was right there and could've had at least two goals. He played well and we could roll four lines with him in there, but we can't now because Westgarth is in. To hell with it though, Go Kings!

It's obvious Murray feels that he's secure in his job no matter what happens in the playoffs, so he has carte blanche to do whatever.
That'd be nice if Westgarth could actually beat someone up. I'm currently developing a magic punch theory that explains how Westgarth broke David Koci's jaw during the preseason without throwing a punch. I'm not sure which is more embarrassing, Westgarth not winning a fight since then or David Koci getting his jaw broken by this guy.

I don't think he has won a fight all season and he is a pretty lousy hockey player. The team is better off with somebody that can actually do SOMETHING besides complex math equations or recite the Magna Carta and give body shots in a hockey fight. Seriously, somebody tell me one other dope in the NHL who actually throws punches to the body. Even Alexander Semin didn't do that when he fought.
Westgarth is 8-3-7 according to hockeyfights and dropyourgloves websites. He knocked down Gaustad, bloodied Koci in there second battle (first was in the pre-season where he broke his jaw), owned Boll, beat Janssen and edged DJ King. He also put Bissonette to a knee with an uppercut and edged Matt Martin.

Harrold on the 4th line makes me want to vomit.

Oscar Moller is starting to resemble Robbie Schremp. I hope that's not the case.

By the way, it's funny how fans have shifted our attention between deciding on the 4th line RW and everyone is ignoring how much Penner, Smyth, Johnson and Doughty have all struggled recently. Westgarth, Moller, Harrold, they aren't going to win the series. Our best players, who have NOT been our best players since Kopitar went down need to be our BEST players or this is all for not.

The only way they Kings will win this series is to shut the Sharks down, and all the guys capable of doing that are all healthy and in the lineup tonight.

The Kings are better defensively, better on the PK, and Quick is a gamer. If the Kings play to their strengths for 4 games of 7 and shut San Jose down - they'll win the series.

Defense wins championships. No time like now to remind the pundits of that.

Ok out of all those fights, the only one I remember him connecting some decent shots on was Bissonette and I believe that was recently so i stand corrected there. However, most of his fights are just hugging matches. I guess hockeyfights.com gives points for body shots because Westgarth is by far the best in the league with those.

That is a fair point but I think everyone's expectations of Smyth are a bit tempered at this point. Doughty and Johnson are pretty inexcusable. Both should be performing better. Penner as well.

And you are right that the Kings players need to be the best players but having Westgarth out there is virtually useless. Ideally the Kings should have called up Clune or somebody who is a more effective all around player than Westgarth OR Harrold.

What is really comical is some of the ones throwing the fits will be the same ones who expected that result.

I have every right to whine and ***** since I'm one of the few who actually expect them to win.

I agree with that last part, I would've liked to see Clune up here, but he would've been subjected to recall waivers, so the Kings risk losing him.
