Remember, this was under Terry Murray and I don't think he was really assigned to carry any specific role.
Now the second time around, there are no expectations with him coming in and he has less responsibilities to handle. His assignment is simple, go out there and play up to your strengths, and he's doing just that. He's a player whose strengths are along the boards.
King excels at digging for pucks in the corners and along the wall and as we saw on his goal last night, he has the ability to take the puck from the outside to the inside due to his size and reach. King has been the perfect big bodied left wing to compliment Stoll and Lewis.
This can almost be said of all the players under Murray. Once Sutter came in, he seemed to define each player with his role, and for once kept the lines together until later in the playoffs where King and Penner were switched.
