Dustin Penner escapes Kings' doghouse, set to play against Ducks

I thought Gagne looked good playing with Richards and Carter. Honestly, I'm none too pleased with the play of Justin Williams of late. He's been turning the puck over a lot, as has Kopitar. But the Kings won't be sitting any of those guys down (nor should they) so the odd man out unfortunately has to be one of Dwight King or Simon Gagne.

I am starting to wonder how long the Kings keep Lewis on the Third line...

Lewis can no longer be a black hole for offense, And receive that amount of minutes.

Same goes for Stoll/King. The Kings may need an entire new third line.

Lewis turns it on in the playoffs. I could care less about regular season points for him.

Maybe try this

Brown-Kopitar-Williams
Gagne-Richards-Carter
Penner-Stoll-Clifford
Nolan-Fraser-Lewis
King

Odd combo but try it out.

I would like to see a third line of Clifford-Stoll-Nolan. Clifford and Nolan are clear upgrades over Lewis/King IMO.

I still think DL should be looking into moving King while his value is somewhat inflated.

Yep.

I've said this before, but a lot of teams would love to have a young, cheap, big bodied forward, that was a starter for the SC champs and scored some big goals. His trade value could be surprisingly high.

In reality, King doesn't bring enough energy/grit/defense to the bottom 6, and can't score enough for a top 6 role.

Defensively lewis is great but the posters saying he needs to be contribting more is totally right. If it was up to me nolon would be on the 3rd line and lewis does the pk and 4th line mins. Has penner ever played right wing might be a idea to try him on the 3rd line

Penner has played some RW in the past.

Nolan is better than any player in that bottom 6.

Yeah I wouldn't take Nolan out for any of the players they've been sitting of late. He throws his weight around and his work ethic can never be questioned, unlike Penner.

The power play is so bad, I would put Nolan on it (why not ?)

The Kid knows goals are scored in front of the net.

He is a big body that can skate, with decent hands. He would draw attention away from the point.

Nolan has offensive upside, I hope the Kings don't waste it.

I'd like to see Stewart up for a few games in his place. The guy had a 39 point season not too long ago.

It's not "favs." He's been consistently one of the best players this year, even in his limited minutes.

Yes he has played a few good games but only cause everyone else didn't he was noticable imo. We need more offense out of the 3rd line and nolon becames the odd man out because lewis plays a better defensive game and also plays on the pk. I honestly dont see why everyone seems to love the guy and yet before this year all the hate on clifford I always said clifford was the better player and so far this year im right

The lines aren't the problem. The team just needs to find new ways to score. We cannot take a step back and find ourselves re-living the last regular season all over. They just need to step it up and get pucks through traffic. Hopefully we will break through offensively soon, or else we could dig ourselves into a hole we can't get out of real fast.

I agree which is way i want to see penner playing rw on the 3rd line and nolon sitting. I think a newly hopefully motivated penner playing on the right side will wake up the offense Worth a try to me
