Somehow the Penner discussion thread got hijacked, so I thought I would start up a separate one for King.
Bottom line, this guy is seemingly very divisive for Kings fans. Either you love or hate him, it seems.
Well, there really is only one vote here, and that is Sutter's: he loves the guy. So if you hate him, you are going to have to learn to live with him as a permanent fixture on that third line.
For a team desperately lacking in quality LWs, I would think that those of you that hate this guy would realize how important he is to this team, as presently constituted. True, he may not be lighting up the scoreboard, but he does all those "little" things that Sutter loves: forecheck, forecheck, and more forecheck. Every once in a while, he makes a great pass for an assist. True, I would like to see him get more scoring, much more consistently, as he showed the Cup season. Here's to hoping last season was the so-called "sophomore jinx."
