Gagne? Man, I wish this guy could find his groove, but if he isn't putting up points his value drops quite a bit. King's job is to create space for his linemates and be a presence on the forecheck. This is what I believe Sutter means by "working hard" when it comes to King. Lately, King has been doing the little things that Sutter believes make a difference.
I don't see any presence from him on the forecheck. He's too far behind the play to be effective.

Gagne hasn't been good, but he's still been more productive than King.
