In a perfect world, King is a third line defensive winger who can chip in the occasional goal. Clifford is a fourth line physical/energy player who plays one of the most honest to goodness games of hockey every night.

I love Clifford. He had a down year. However, I think his style of play is more suited in that role. He'll drop the gloves, but he's not a goon by any means.

It's hard to say whether or not the concussions have had an impact on his play, since he didn't play much in the playoffs since the hit against Vancouver. He's had two concussions already in two years with the Kings, so there's a bit of a legitimate concern.

He does chip in a goal on occasion, and when told to crash the net, will do it with enthusiasm... however, I don't think he's someone who you should rely on to score.
