King is really pretty consistent, though.
I don't think he is terrible for a bottom 6er; he is big, good on the forecheck, wins board battles, works hard, and is a "good enough" skater. But the guy seriously has NO offensive skills at all and has never really displayed any. Not shooting, not passing, not receiving, not positioning, and for all his size he doesn't even make many hits.

I'm okay with him being on the bottom 6, but he just doesn't really add much to the line to make it either dangerous or hard to play against.
That is what everyone said about him last year, and he put up decent numbers.
