I can't wait for Toffoli. He's actually a real sniper and has a shot unlike most of our wingers

Penner was using his size, shielding the puck, and was creating room for Carter and Richards. From the second round on, they were contributing even if they weren't getting on the score sheet.

This season however is a different story. They're among the group of players who should be doing more. It's unfair to single out just them when you have about 9 players who have yet to show up, those names include...

Kopitar, Brown, Williams, Richards, Carter, Gagne, Penner, Stoll, King. The only forwards who have looked good are Clifford, Nolan, and Fraser. That's it.
Goes to show you how hard Fraser works, he didn't play hockey at all, stayed home with the new born.

Fraser looks healthy and in game shape. Not bad for a throw in, and only 850k against the cap.

Don't think Richards has the skill to carry a PP, so he's going to have to be in a situation that uses him well as a piece.
He majority of the time played the point on the PP in Philly as in LA, the issue is the Kings power play is so stationary while Philly's was mobile, they seem to just stand and pass it and not move, even though it was only one game, the 1st goal in game 6 last year, notice the puck movement as well as movement from Brown, that's what the power play needs, MOVEMENT.

I had to have a movement after last nights game. At least that made me feel better after the loss. :/

As for the other comment, that line had a good couple of months, then became statistically one of the worst in the NHL after about January. I like Brown alot as a player, but I wouldn't exactly call him an Einstein on the ice, pair him with two guys like Smyth and Stoll who have zero game sense and it equals a disaster, especially defensively. And once Stoll and Smyth stopped scoring that year, both became total liabilities on the ice, no matter who they played with.
A couple good months is better than the train wreck of last season at least.

If they hadn't won the Cup, they're probably not back. Penner is on a 1 year deal, so he didn't even earn a longer deal off a Cup. Stoll plays a more important position, and should win faceoffs. Did he need a 3 year deal for the Kings to keep him? Knowing how free agency works in the NHL, yeah. Did they need to keep him? Lombardi wanted to bring the team back, so, they wanted to keep him. See how it works, and then go from there.

I'm sure teams will be beating down the door.
