Unless we help them with their rebuild.
Maybe send Baier, Corvo (or Avery) and a pick.

Unless that is a very high pick, I can't see how in the world you could classify that deal as a "help" to St. Louis.

Anyway, back to Kopitar. Depending on the training camp he has, I could see him filling a spot on the 2nd or 3rd center line. I think it would be fitting to acquire a proven #1 center, shift Conroy to a role better suitable for him as the main checking line center (just as the Devils have John Madden or the Wings have Kris Draper. Conroy has better offensive skills than Madden and Draper though).

Place Kopitar between Cammalleri and Brown and watch the fun ensue with the Kings own version of a kid line with their own drafted players.

If Brown isn't ready to produce offensively, he would be better suited being bumped to a checking role with Conroy centering him. If Parrish could be retained, the Kings could have a very aggressive third scoring and forechecking line of all US players with Brown-Conroy-Parrish.

The newly acquired #1 center should be centering Frolov and Demitra. If Avery can get straightened out, leave him with Belanger and Kostopoulos as they were one of the only consistent lines throughout the season.

That leaves one open spot. Seeing how the Kings intended to bring in speed and talent with the Valeri Bure signing, I would think they would try to look for another speedy and talented winger.

The Kings would have an excellent set of four lines right there.

Frolov-#1 Center-Demitra
Speedy Winger-Kopitar-Cammalleri
Brown-Conroy-Parrish
Avery-Belanger-Kostopoulos

That's what I, too, feel would be the ideal situation down the middle, Ziggy. An alternate arrangement might be moving Demitra to center and acquiring a #1 RWer, which would be easier to come by, but a #1 center would probably be preferable (though harder).

By all accounts and the video I've seen, it appears that Kopitar is indeed ready to in the NHL. 2nd line center may be a bit optomistic at this point, we'll see what the offseason brings us as far as personnel goes.

My main concern is that in spite of Koptar's size, it will be an adjustment to the NHL and the more physical style of play. I want someone on his line that can protect him to a degree from the Andy Sutton's of the NHL.

Cammy would likely be a good fit as the skilled winger, and I could potentially see Pushkarev pairing up with Anze in the future...

He looks like a mix between Hossa and Malkin (with a sprinkle of Antropov)

Rise from your grave. For those starving for hockey and more Kopitar footage (in case you missed it the first time around).

If anyone is interested in already purchasing a Kopitar Kings jersey, it appears that he will be wearing #11 (as that is the number he wore at prospects camp).

It looks like he's just got those kind of sunken eyes.

This is the first time I've seen him in action. Very impressive, he's one of those guys that always seems to find the net empty in front of him.

Thank you very much for the videos Connan Head Exactlly what i was thinking, kid takes not too much time but the right amount of time in these situations. patience
