This year, doubtful.

This is what I want the lineup to look like now. Byfield will move up in the lineup sooner than later but this year is a learning curve

Fair, I guess there isn’t that much difference between both their wingers

Lizotte has been really good this year. There are other underperforming players that you can replace beside Lizotte.

Moore, Kupari, and Grundstrom should be taken out before Lizotte.

Nope not a fan. I’d much rather JAD take his spot.

He falls more than anything. I just can’t stand the guy.

The other guys too. That’s why I don’t have them up higher. Except I do like Kupari but I could interchange him with JAD, I’d be fine with

I ain't a kings fan myself but your record is as good as your team is.

500. isn't bad by any means for the first quarter of the year and a team who is still rebuilding.

You guys are still 2-3 years away from being a contending team in general and are completely fine.

You still have byfield,clarke,turocettee,durzi and lots more prospects to develop.

Stop freaking out you can still make the playoffs this year as a wild card and aren't a contending team regardless but will be in 2-3 years when your prospects come up

But every other time he falls over, someone from the other team goes to the penalty box. He has the most drawn penalties on the team by far. If the Kings could just get their act together on the power play and actually put the puck in the net, he'd be team MVP.

The point of the post is to get more guys into the lineup that I believe could make a difference.

I'd go a little further and swap Kaliyev and Vilardi. What that first line needs is a shooter that the opponents have to worry about every time the puck comes towards him. THAT is the threat we've been lacking for years.

I’d rather him be more productive than just fall on the ice and potentially draw a penalty. He falls when he gets hit all the time. When he attempts to battle for a puck he falls and loses the puck without drawing penalties.

Honestly I changed that last second. I did have the latter and said nope maybe Vilardi could get out of his head and be a nice addition to Kopitars line.

He's on pace for 20 points, is +3, and is doing really well in the faceoff dot (53.1%), not to mention the drawn penalties that i mentioned previously. Not sure what you're looking for out of a 4th line player. He can fall down as much as he needs to as long as he can keep it up.

Although you’re making harder for me to not like the guy I’d still rather have someone else.
I still believe JAD can be better with more grit than lizotte. I get they aren’t using some players due to contracts and ELC and lizotte is a place holder for that reason.

I'm fine with giving his spot away if and when someone outplays him for it, but he's been one of the better bottom six forwards so far this season. He's earned his spot in the lineup.
