    Do we stay Pearson - Carter - TT or does Richards slide back into the Center spot

    Here is an off the wall thought, if Brown drops to Dwight Kings spot, we look to trade one of either Clifford or King, TT moves up to the first line
    We ice

    Gaborik - Kopitar - TT
    Pearson - Richards - Carter
    Brown - Stoll - Williams
    Clifford - Lewis - Cracknell
    If you go through the playoffs, you'd notice that the line ups change by their results. The Taffoli-Carter-Pearson line only was created because of the difficulty the Kings had in Chicago. It worked and even got a cool name. But the line disappeared in the Finals and got mixed. Sutter doesn't play lines, he plays matchups. This line-up guessing game that is always played on this website doesn't work anymore because Sutter knows enough to keep changing them until he gets something that works. Tomorrow it will be different.

    I think DL will offer up a couple of 7 year deals, and have both of these guys finish their careers as Kings. Theres no reason to break up the party so quickly. They could probably get Stoll for 7 years 22mil and Williams for 7 years 28mil. Cap hit would be very manageable, wouldnt get stuck with any cap penalties if they retire early. DL could also probably get both guys signed without a NTC/NMC. Both guys like it here in LA and have been very successful. Lets keep the good times rolling!

    Considering DL is secretly in love with Stoll, he's gonna give him a long contract so he can swoop in when Stolly and Erin call it quits.

    But on the srs, I think both stay here for at least a couple years. I could see him handing them a contract like Gaborik's, with a lower $ figure (closer to 2.5 than 4). He has to take Pearson, Toffoli, Muzzin and Martinez into consideration as well. On the brightside, Regehr's $3 million will be scratched off the books by then.

    But then again, who cares. Let's enjoy the summer. Who knows when we'll win the Cup again.

    Especially since he out-played Brown from camp to the Cup lifting.

    And I think he will continue to do so. Dwight King is a heck of a player.

    I personally feel that Lombardi already has a corner office picked out for him when he hangs them up.
