5 of the Kings' Top 6 Forwards Ranked Among NHL's Best


With their two big acquisitions over the last two weeks, the Kings have added some much-needed depth. In TSN's player rankings, last season the Kings had only Anze Kopitar ranked among the league's top 40 centers (6th, but 7th if you count non-qualifier Sidney Crosby who spent too much of the season hurt to make the cut). Among right wings, Dustin Brown was ranked 20th and Justin Williams 25th. They had no left wings among the top 40.

 

The additions of Mike Richards and Simon Gagne give the Kings another top flight centerman and that star left wing the team has desperately needed for years now. Gagne finished the season ranked 37th among left wings (one spot behind a certain Mr. Kovalchuk) and Richards 17th among centers.

 

That means that 5 of the Kings top 6 forwards are ranked among the best in the NHL by TSN. I wonder how many other teams can make such a claim.
