It's just six games. People forget that Randy Jones had 11 points in his first 14 games as a King, and at the time was being hailed as the jump-starter for the Kings' struggling offense.
People haven't forgotten. It's just that you can forgive Jones' mistakes if he is contributing in other ways (on the scoresheet). It was when he stopped scoring that people paid more attention to how poorly he plays defensively.
Johnson is in the same boat right now; he's not scoring or hitting and still makes rookie mistakes (poor reads).
The top scoring defenseman on the Kings right now is Mitchell (tied for 8th on the team with 2 points) That is the problem with the Kings attack right now. No one can complete break-out passes cleanly.
Loktionov has more hits than Jack Johnson does.
