He's really spreading those lines. Looks like Loktionov will be back in Manchester soon with Richards due back.

Forget the lines, WTF is this? "The Kings are on the ice this morning with new coach Darryl Sutter, and still with assistant coaches John Stevens, Jamie Kompon and Bill Ranford."

I kind of like those lines. The top 2 lines at least have some speed with Richardson and Lewis. I guess DS is going with the Kopitar-Brown chemistry and the Gagner-Richards chemistry for the O. The Penner-Stoll-Williams line has been our best line the last few games. I think the fourth line is just a mish mash of whoever.

Stevens is the only coach that's definitely being kept thru the end of the season. The rest of the staff is being evaluated.

So weird to have a new coach. Can't really evaluate him yet. I just hope he has more patience with the lines then Murray did.

This is your guess or you have read that somewhere? It would be great if the coaching staff (Kompon) is evaluated as well, not only players.

Wow, somehow we no longer have a horrible third line

It would be really, really nice if this could jumpstart some offense from Richardson and Lewis. Let's hope they can pull their weight on scoring lines.

Kurri's dream finally came true with Richardson on top line.

I really like these lines since he's spreading the skilll and speed to all of the lines. Man, I hope Kompon gets let go soon, I don't know how he still has a job.

I like it. I always thought Richy and Lewis deserved another chance in the top 6. Both have great speed, although Lewis can't hit the net for his life.

Loving these lines.

Adding the speed to the 1st and 2nd with Lewis and RIchardson...really good stuff. Guys who can get in and get on the forecheck quickly.


Really looking forward to what Lewy can contribute in an offensive role rather then....well how Murray used him...4th line and press box only.

Richardson, Lewis and Voynov are going to get a chance to impress. Do something with it boys.

The more I think about it...you can really see the formula here...and it's one that worked in Calgary.


on the top two lines you have a skill guy, a grit player, and speed.

Lewis, Richie (speed)
Rick, Brownie (Grit and skill)
Kopi, Gagne (skill)



when you look at the top line Calgary had for a couple seasons under Sutter...

Gelinas - Conroy - Iginla

Speed - Skill - Skill/Size/Grit

Sutter is obviously injecting and trying to spread the speed.

Better dress Westgarth against the Ducks, they just added Pelley and Parros is back.

I was thinking the same thing. Sutter is trying to utilize speed throughout the lineup, he wants the puck to be moved faster, a quicker forecheck, and better skating through the neutral zone. Should be interesting. All depends on how he utilizes them. I'll turn a blind eye to the lines for a few games as he gets adjusted to things. Good to have him on board. Remember, this is what we all wanted...

I also agree, Westgarth needs to be in the lineup.

Getting Richards back should be huge for it. Hopefully he gives us something to rally around and get going with our comeback.

Yea it's an approach that we haven't had on the top two lines in a while. Speed. last time i can remember that was Simmer/Richie with Kopi for stints two seasons ago..and they looked good for periods of time.

Personally, I think Sutter should flip Brown and Williams.

Without Brown there is no physical presence on the 1st line.
