I know Simmonds put up 40 points the one year for you guys so its not like he just developed an offensive game over night but iirc you guys mostly used him in checking line role & he would jump up in case of injury or something. Did you guys use him on the PP? If so did he play in front of the net?

The guy is a beast in front of the net on the PP. It's honestly where half his goals & points come from.
From what I can remember Terry Murray mainly used him in a shut down role with Handzus. I think he got some PP time under Kompon, but hardly ever. Only scored 1 PP goal with us his last year with us. Zeus was actually the guy that would stand in front of the net running interference more than Simmer. The Kings-Flyers relationship has benefited both franchises, latest transfer being Hextall. Enjoy the crazy ****, cuz we're sure gonna miss him too...
