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.
Very good post. So Tangradi, Bennett or Jeffrey on that second line? Saves us a lot of cap to help our D if someone works out.
