Penner-Stoll-Williams line is probably the most expensive line as someone already mentioned, but I really think this line can be very effective. I'm really happy with the line changes. It's just too bad that Lokti's not part of the starting line, but in all fairness, he really hasn't earned it.

Looks like JJ's ego takes a bit of a hit. He's probably not too thrilled to be a third pairing behind a rookie Voynov.

its more a case of having everyone play their natural sides than demoting JJ

I really don't think we have a bottom pairing. They'll all see equal ice time on even strength and more or less depending on how the special teams goes. I'd imagine that Doughty, Johnson, and Voynov get most of the power play time while Mitchell, Scuderi, and Greene (and Drew) get the penalty kill. Just a hunch. I think that Drew, Jack, and Mitchell lead the Kings defense in time on ice.

Richardson is worthless. Can't shoot, can't pass, can't play tough, turns the puck over, can't play defense and yet he's on the top line again. Sometimes speed is a curse because it blinds people.

Are you kidding? Everyone on this team can play defense. It's the one thing they're all good to great at.

Thornton exposed him as a centerman in last year's playoffs. As far as on the wing goes, I think he is ok in this own end.

It has been proven that he is the worst defensive forward in the team. I have done the analysis - it's somewhere in the forum - and there is no doubt that he lowers +/- of other players more than anyone else. He actually lowers JJ's +/- more than JJ lowers Richardson's.

Richardson can't play defense, he is terrible.

What Nex said... the reason Richardson sees PK time is because he is fast, he's good at pressuring defensemen with his speed, but he is a poor defensive forward in terms of being a defensively responsible forward on the backcheck and positionally.

I remember in the playoffs when Richardson was "backchecking" without using his stick OR speed to get to the wide open man who ended up scoring the game winner. I wouldn't say he's useless but speed is the only thing that he has that possibly helps him.
