In contrast to previous seasons, the Kings — with 12 days still remaining before the start of the season — already appear to have their top three lines set, with…
What, then, to do with the fourth line? One “agitator” and one “enforcer”? Two of one and none of the other? Ivanans or Westgarth? Clune or Zeiler (or Clifford)? Is Harrold your center, for certain? Others? Remember, also, that there will likely be two spare forwards on the roster, so keep in mind that you’re selecting five players for three spots, essentially. Also keep in mind that Harrold can play defense if needed… So, what do you think?
For the record, I’m largely non-committal on this issue. I’d like to see the Kings give chances to Clune and Harrold, but I really don’t have a strong opinion on Ivanans vs. Westgarth, etc.
