As I keep pointing out, King was well below avg in the A, had much less pedigree than Tangradi, yet was given a shot right out of the A to play on Richards line in LA. He literally did nothing to earn that spot except be a big body, which the Kings were looking for.

Once everyone was healthy he was put on the third line and I'm 100% sure the Kings don't win the cup without his timely goals.

Youth can't reward you if you don't give them the opportunity.
good post
