Of course King is the weakest, he was second-last taken in the round.

I specifically wanted a speedy goal scorer to skate beside Don Raleigh. If he's dependent on having a good center, that's fine. Look who he's skating with.

It would have been nice if he was a great penalty killer, or could play the hitting game, or could juggle chainsaws. Unfortunately there aren't too many fast, tough, goal-scoring two-way left wingers available in AAA Round 7.
