He's not the only King who isn't producing. And he still contributes a lot more than more forwards without scoring by his defensive work and PK. There's a reason when he went down hurt DEc 1 that the team dropped 5 in a row after and won only 2 in the 9 games he missed. It's all the things he does on the ice that you miss.
And he wasn't 100% in Jan and has looked better in the last 3. He will return to preinjury form and get better as the playoffs approach.
Hopefully, DL gets Kopi a winger and whoever is leftover drops to Richards line to replace Stoll.
He had 2 goals in 2 games after coming back from injury. What I said was exactly correct; he had 11 goals in 13 games from November 8th to December 23rd. His first game back from injury was December 22nd against Anaheim, his second game back from injury was December 23rd against San Jose.
