Hunter, Clifford, and Lewis were very solid last game.

I am sure the Yotes are dressing Biz is the reason.

When are we going to make teams adjust to us? Instead of us always adjusting to the opposition.

Just let Lewis, Clifford, and Hunter skate circles around their enforcers. We have enough players that will step up if they deliver a cheap shot.

Well, I think we all don't want Clifford fighting Bissonette. They will play Pyatt, Torres and Bissonette and frankly Clifford could only beat Torres in a fight.

Kyle is trying to fight a lot less and get his face smashed less this year and I think the Kings want to help him with that.

I usually am against playing a goon, but honestly Hunter has been so invisible it doesn't even matter. The biggest concern is Westgarth taking one of his stupid stick penalties he is known to take.

Yeah, Hunter has been a disapointment...maybe they should put Parse in against more skilled teams instead or call up King...

Regarding Hunter, its kind of hard look at a 4th liner playing 4th line minutes in 3 out of 5 games and form an opinion that is anything more than speculative. I will say that I've noticed him every now and then (moreso than Clifford), and that's about all one should expect out of him at this stage.

This is Kopi in that SAME game ...



HELL ... if ANY Pic looked PHOTOSHOPPED I would have figured you'd have said THIS ONE, as Dustin Brown looks like he's doing something that defies Physics !

Whoa That looks so much like Kopitar it's crazy! Wow!

Jack uses the NIKE Bauer Stick, and Kopi the Warrior Stick that's how you can tell them apart

I'm not totally against the idea of dressing an enforcer against a team like the Coyotes; I just know Murray likes to roll 4 lines far too much. I don't want to see Westgarth on the ice for more than 10 minutes.

Double shift Kopi/Richards/Whoever, etc. in place of Westgarth on some shifts ... that might get Lewis & Clifford going and on the score sheet too

The difference is Clifford is young and is still learning the game. Hunter was brought in for that veteran presence, so you can't really compare the two at this point. But I do agree that Hunter has done a fine job so far. Solid C+.

Well yeah I think that's what any of us would do, but we don't coach this team. Terry Murray does. So, we'll see what happens.

I don't think Westy is a threat for double digits in ice time.

Murray played Clifford and Hunter for 6 minutes against St Louis (in a blowout no less). Lewis had a little more TOI because of PK duties.

I didn't know that. That's good to hear. Hopefully this is the start of a new trend.

He's doing what he does best: falling over for no apparent reason.

Doan is going for goal number 300 tonight. How many minutes will it take him to score it?

I am ok with Westy getting some ice time. One thing I will say about Westy, the guy is the King's biggest cheerleader. He's got heart. Honestly, I think right now he's pretty useless besides enforcing (sorry), but I do think with experience he has potential to be an extremely effective 4th liner/checker/enforcer/part-time scorer guy.

Disagree. I think Kopitar's line is still drawing most of the defensive attention from other teams.

Where I think Richards has helped out the most in on the PP.
