    Kopitar is my favorite King, but imo from what I see is he does need the talent to bring out the best in him. He isn't a player who makes people around him better though. I look at Palffy as an example. He carried the team on his back the year Deadmarsh and Alison got hurt to where they still could make the playoffs until he got hurt and the season was done. But Palffy took Armstrong whom was a 3rd line center and make him a better player. Palffy simply had the skill to do so. Gretzky was another of course and then there are plenty of other teams #1 center who makes players better also.

    Putting Brown, Gaborik, Dwight King etc. on his line makes him worse since he can't make players around him better. He needs a highly skilled forward who is not old and broke and one who doesn't fall down and turn over the puck or a big sluggish non skilled winger.

    Unfortunately his play last year was often "verbless.'

    Many sides are to blame for Kopitar's lack of production, many sides.

    It's a question of attitude. He wanted to play well in the tourney, and didn't care about playing well for Sutter last year.

    He's not made from staunch stock.
    You're funny. Leads the team in scoring 9 of the last 10 years and you question what he is made of. But wait, I keep forgetting, this is pretend land where you act as if you know the players.

    Are Brown, Gaborik, Toffoli, Muzzin, Richards...made of "staunch stock"?

    Missing his point here. It's not that he doesn't like Kopi, Brown, Quick, it's the contracts they were offered and signed. So it's their fault. Although, when Dean had the chance to buy out Richards and didn't, that was OK as Richards was the only thing that won a cup for us...right
