MayorsManor: What line-up the LA Kings should use, not what it will be

Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to read the article put up over the weekend predicting what moves the Kings would be making to get down to the maximum roster size of 23 players. Perhaps the most common question asked this week is how/why Tyler Toffoli didn’t make the final list.

Raw post-game thoughts from Drew Doughty after Kings win in Anaheim

On beating the Ducks:
“It kind of set the tone for the season. I think we play them at home next, so it kind of set the tone for that game, too. I’m sure both teams in that game will have more of their full lineups dressed. We’re happy with the win. We didn’t play too [...]
