How is this guy still in the lineup!? He's done literally nothing all series. We have 3 healthy bodies who are all much faster and more physical then this duster.

It's a huge mistake to kep playing this guy when McCarron is objectively superior, hungrier and can benefit from the experience.

Also would like to see Martinsen instead of Mitchell, who is useless and not even NHL-worthy.

I argued with like 5 people on how this guy sucked in the playoffs and that we should have gotten Vanek.

Mitchell is much better than Martinsen, who can skate and hit but has no idea how to play hockey.

Both may be better than King.

At this point, I'd put in Flynn over King. I would prefer McCarron though.

Welp, its HF, where 99% of user havent played any sort of competitive hockey in their life.

But yeah, played a good game.
So what's the verdict now, is he useless? What's the verdict on Galchenyuk aswell? Keep arguing tho.

He's just too slow to do anything offensively. Brings more than Martinsen and Ott but it looks like he's skating through tar.

i enjoy how he never finishes a check, and skates around like a big goof. Martinsen please.

.
Indeed, McCarron could have made that fourth line way better than King but for some reasons Julien refuses to make that change.. That was another very close game, sometimes a quality grinder can make a difference by generating momentum and obviously King doesnt generate anything.. I blame Julien for that loss by not dressing the best possible line-up.

Prized acquisition who is "good at everything"

Oh ya, "need to wait for playoffs"

Maybe he is still "devasted" by the trade so its affecting his game

Exactly. It would have been great for McCarron's development to get a taste of NHL playoffs games. He still never played in one.

I was willing to give King the benefit of the doubt and see if he could bring it come playoffs time.. But the answer has been obvious, he brings absolutely nothing.

Terrible trade, predictable outcome.

Bad asset management.

I wonder what we could have received for Andrighetto, a 4th and a 6th.

A smarter GM could've turned that into a middle 6 player. BargainBin was able to acquire a 5th line.

Andrighetto should not have been traded in the first place unless the return is significant which they could not get considering that MT had ruined his value. The team that has had more than their share of scoring woes during the season could have used a guy who scored 16 points in 19 games when given a real opportunity.

King should sit for the next two games at least. We'll see about the second round.

Agreed and I will add to that that I hope never to see King again in the Habs uniform. Lets see if they have the balls to admit the mistake and make adjustments.

He could be a solution against a slower team but he is getting killed by the Rangers.
