I think you would like more size for bottom-6 centers, and I don't know if he has enough offense to be a top-6 forward. Far from the biggest problem on this team, though.
The kindest way to put it is that this team needs Kupari, JAD, Byfield and/or Turcotte to make Lizotte expendable. Kupari seems to be on track with his PK work, but is still missing the consistency. Everyone else has yet to get Todds ear.
I remember in my beer league hockey days how much it meant to have someone light a fire every time they hit the ice. Watching Lizotte from the bench, however bad any Kings player is feeling about their previous shift, they must see Lizotte giving it 100% and think "Look at that guy, I better pull it together". No substitute for that kind of energy. He's a fave. I hope he gets developed to his max potential and is a King for as long as we can keep him.
I actually agree with everything being said here.
Consensus: he'd be more appropriately deployed as fourth line winger in an energy, possession role, but he's not getting moved off the center position until some of the younger players push him out and into a role he's better suited for.
He's kind of interesting marker for where the team as a whole is right now.
