LAKings LA Kings
#LAKings Ethan Moreau will wear #17, Colin Fraser will wear #24 and Alec Martinez is changing his number from #53 to #27
I hear #8 might be available.
On a side note, I wouldn't mind trading for Lappy to fulfill our 3RW. I know I'm in the minority big time especially with his lingering concussion but I just wished he could finish his career here with the kings.
Why not spread them out a bit and play Lewis and Richardson where they are most effective.
You are very close to the lineup I want to see. I personally believe Richardson is a better center and Lewis is a better right winger and more suitable for the third line, but it may not work out that way due to how seniority is handled on our roster. The only changes I would make is Brown would never play left wing, and I like his chemistry with Kopitar despite the fiery debate that causes. That and I am very interested to see what kind of chemistry Williams can have with Gagne and Richards. My ideal lineup:
Moreau-Richardson-Westgarth/Parse (depending on situation)
Richardson is also weak at center. He can't win draws (then again Lewis needs work there as well), but more importantly, his defensive positioning as a centerman inside his own end was porous. Just look at any time the puck was inside the Kings' end when his line was out during the playoffs and Richardson was the center. The Kings had great difficulty getting the puck out because of they were so weak defensively in that regard. Richardson is a much better winger.
