He's going to be very good next to Kyle Clifford on the "I'll chew your head off" line. Getting Colin Fraser replaces some of the "sandpaper" lost in shipping Simmonds off to the Flyers. How about:

Dustin Penner - Anze Kopitar - Justin Williams

Scott Parse - Mike Richards - Dustin Brown

Jarret Stoll - Andrei Loktionov - Trevor Lewis

Kyle Clifford - Colin Fraser - Kevin Westgarth/Brad Richardson

Yes, I moved Stoll to wing. He can still take the draws as needed (like Murray did with Handzus and Moller a few years ago). And, yes, I know Lombardi will be looking for a UFA to upgrade LW2. Until then, we'll play the roster game with the players we actually have. 

(Oh, and check out the picture that goes with this story.)
