King and Nolan have effectively filled the void left by Simmonds

I don't think Nolan gets enough credit. I feel he's been just as good as King when you consider the less forgiving line and opportunities. I'm glad you're giving him props.

Nolan honestly reminds me a bit of Simmonds with his wide skating stance while protecting the puck, and just his ability to protect it in tight places down low. Hopefully he can keep progressing like he already has.

I gotta agree with this. Ever since the call-ups our 4th line has improved, which Nolan has helped with. I feel like he has good offensive upside too...

I feel the same way. He also shows occasional flashes of offensive upside just like Simmonds used to.
