The 2012 playoffs version of King was great, probably the best performance we've seen from a 3rd line LW on the Kings in a very long time (maybe since John Tonelli?). But the 2013 regular season performance by King was so uninspiring. He looked flat out there and was not able to do much when the puck came to him.

He got better during the 2013 playoffs and was involved in a few goals, but I think in addition to us, the Kings also expect more from him. He needs to be more assertive physically and have more of a net presence. We saw that from him during the Cup run, but then it went missing for a majority of 2013. If he doesn't get back to the top of his game, he's a goner.
