Can we be provided links to these games you are referenceing that seemingly no other fan has witnessed?

Have some patience. King is going through a sophomore slump; it's no big deal. I'm not against having him be a healthy scratch, but I think he is still in our future plans. Give the kid some time.
Though I haven't spoken much on King, I'd like to say I wanted him traded in the off-season and not Clifford last year. I've felt Clifford had the ability to produce on any line (outside of the 1st line) while King seems to definately be a tweener. Not physical enough for the 3rd line nor skilled enough for the 2nd. That said, at this stage I'd rather hold onto him than trade him. Sutter likes him, he's not hurting us really and he doesn't hold much value to be honest. Unless we dealt him in a previously discussed deal like him plus Muzzin for Paajarvi and a pick, or something like that where we get a guy back that can help us now, then let's just keep him and see if he really was a flash in the pan or there's more to him.
