    So how do you propose we get either Bergeron or Tavares?
    I don't know the exact stats of the players in the league in faceoffs but it seems to me most hover around 50%. That tells me there isn't a discernable difference with most players so it really isn't a stat that says or helps much. There are other parts of the game a forward needs to have that are far more important that faceoffs.

    and how many they kept winning AFTER winning the faceoff?

    they have to control the puck (of even SHOOT) after they win a faceoff

    The Kings were 5th in the league Faceoffs and scored 239 goals. Colorado was 28th and scored 312. Florida was 23rd and scored 340. Somethin tells me faceoffs aren't an issue that needs to be addressed...

    Faceoffs are fine. What this team needs is the ability to finish. Just take a gander above at the face-off acumen in comparison to goal scoring of teams like Colorado and Florida.
