  1. I think Clifford should be the front runner for the LW3 position over King. I don’t understand what Sutter likes in King.

    • Neil Shafton says:

      I don’t think you will know for sure until the season starts.

      I agree, King didn’t do much last season, and this is a contract year for him. The only thing I think Sutter is looking for is a big guy maybe to play on the 2nd line LW spot if Frattin doesn’t work out.

      Clifford can move up and down and be pretty effective, so I don’t think there is much concern for KFC making the NHL roster out of camp.

      King seemed to be a “floater” didn’t engage or really battle like he should have for pucks, nor did he really use his size as all last season.

      Given the Kings have some guys who could step up, or take a spot on the 3rd or 4th line this should make things interesting.

      Andreoff can play both LW and Center, which makes him more versatile and could mean someone is sent to Manchester to start the season.

      It should be interesting to see how things fall into place this season. Lots of players, very few spots available to take.

  2. Quick and Mitchell listed even though they are not supposed to be playing. Would have expected to see Bartosak.

  3. Are they going to stream the games?

  4. I do agree Clifford over King on that line! King hasnt really produced, if anything probably just size on him. Interesting to see if Frattin and our 2nd can light it up 2nite. Go LA take double game and sweep those yotes!
