Name our lines?

Since Sutter's become the coach, we have some clearly set lines (same with the defense pairings). Of the four lines, three are clearly very good in these playoffs and the worst line has still had several big goals.

The Kings and the NHL have always given cool names to top lines, with obviously our most famous line being the Triple Crown line. Currently our top two lines are just called by the center while the 4th line is just called "the 4th line."

For fun and for the sake of telling this story to our future generation Kings fans, lets see if we can give some fun names to our lines:

Brown-Kopitar-Williams - (Three Amigos, lol)

Penner-Richards-Carter - all three were acquired by trade and are ex-players of other teams

King-Stoll-Lewis - all are almost cast offs, not 4th line regulars, not top six...each has scored a big goal in a big game (hard to see what games aren't big though right now)

Richardson-Fraser-Nolan - The 4th line...but in critical situations Sutter puts this line out first, they make a mess on the ice while tiring out the top pair defenders and then the 1st and 2nd scoring lines hit the ice in immediately after. Reminds me of Taylor, Conacher, Rychel.

If I got the bottom six wrong, just correct me.

X - Richards - Carter: should always be known as "The Bromance," whoever else is on the line doesn't matter. As long as those two are together that will always be that lines name.

Brown - Kopitar - Williams: "The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, and The Lion"
All three together make up for the short comings of the others.

Richardson - Fraser - Nolan: "Anarchy" just the very embodiment of chaos when they are on the ice.

Naming lines have been out of style since the "Legion of Doom" line, but maybe something a little bit more in line to today's style. How about:

Brown-Kopitar-Williams = The Top Line
Penner-Richards-Carter = The 1B Line
King-Stoll-Lewis = The Checking Line
Richardson-Fraser-Nolan= The 4th Line

Hmm, I like it!

Top line Los Reyes Magos, kind of a contemporary, Latino-ized take on the triple crown line. If you live in LA and don't speak Spanish, come on, get with the times.

Second line I would call the Cream Cheese line. Two Philly guys and Penner ... self explanatory.

Third and fourth lines don't get nicknames.
