POLL: What’s Your Line?

At some point in your life you’ve probably heard Albert Einstein’s quote about insanity being defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Perhaps that’s why – among other reasons – coaches tend to mix up their line combinations. And Kings coach Terry Murray is certainly not adverse to testing the chemistry of different players.

Last year the hot line was Ryan Smyth, Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams.

This year, a variety of wingers have spent time up front with Kopitar – including the now injured Scott Parse and recently acquired Marco Sturm.

Last week the majority of MayorsManor readers voted to start Jonathan Bernier against Phoenix and Jonathan Quick versus Philadelphia (full results available here). Murray saw it the opposite way and the Kings lost both games. Coincidence? Most definitely, but still…

Let’s try the offense this time. If you were the coach, who would you play on the Kings top line? Assume that Kopitar remains at center. From the list below, select two players to be his wingers:



Poll closes Thursday at 10am PST.
