I could look it up, but he didn't miss a whole lot of chunks with the Kings. They were more or less the same type of team before him. They made the playoffs in 1998 and were always in that mediocre portion of the NHL regardless. Palffy didn't really change a whole lot on that team. They beat Detroit in 2001 in a surprising playoff round and Palffy did fine there, but he was invisible in the 2nd round in a 7 game loss to the Avs. He just wasn't a guy who you ever thought of putting in a clutch situation. Pittsburgh in 2005-'06 was awful when he was there and awful when he retired midseason. He's a player with little substance and that wasn't exactly something that has now been discovered in 2012, he was just always that way.
