LA Kings Media Roundtable Part 5 – Does Lombardi’s style work?

This is it, the final edition of this summer’s LA Kings Media Roundtable – aka the annual KingsCast summer forum.

Along with a handful of other people who cover the team, we recently spent time debating key issues currently surrounding your favorite hockey team. In the initial video we argued about free agency, Dustin Brown’s contract demands, what to do with Tyler Toffoli and who makes the most sense to trade. If you missed it, you can click here to view it now.

Part two focused exclusively on Anze Kopitar’s past, present and future. Lots of opinions were flying around. You’ll definitely want to click here if you missed it.

Part three looked at the challenges of creating offense from the left side and the impact of trading Jonathan Bernier, which brought Matt Frattin to LA. Watch the discussion here.

Part four targeted the defense – namely the future of Alec Martinez, how likely is Willie Mitchell to return and is Jake Muzzin an important player for the Kings moving forward? Click here to watch it.

Now, in part five, see what we think about Dean Lombardi’s roster style…

  1. Dennis Bernstein would be much more tolerable if not for that horrible, annoying east-coast accent.

  2. seeing how lombardi’s shown a willingness to have players switch position for the sake of the team and the fact that toffoli deserves/needs top 6 minutes here are my lines.

    my “realistic” lines

    Brown-Kopi-JWilliams
    Toffoli-Richards-Carter
    Frattin-Stoll-Lewis
    Clifford-Fraser-Nolan
    extra
    carcillo-King

    my “dream” lines

    Brown-Kopi-Toffoli
    Frattin-Richards-Carter
    Pearson-Stoll-Williams
    Clifford-Lewis-Nolan
    extra
    Carcillo-Fraser-King

    i dont know what the roundtables talking about but replacing penner with toffoli adds plenty of skill to the top 6 imo. id also say that if toffoli were to play with MR & JC then i would predict 20 to 25 goals next year. if he were to somehow end up playing with Kopi & Brown then id predict 25 to 30 goals. i think hes that skilled and that smart. as much as i like and respect what williams does for that top line i just love the idea of finally giving kopi a true sniper type of winger that would consistantly finish the many opportunities that kopi provides. top it off with how much that third line would improve with williams on it(specifically stoll) and i think we’d be a more dangerous and balanced team.

    throwing it out there…not trying to worry about the roster mgmt aspects of it.
    just having fun with it.
