Late '80s Kings

I was wondering about a few players from the late '80s, early '90s Kings, and was hoping some of you could help me out.

Firstly, Jim Fox - I remember him being quick and smalllish with some offensive creativity, but not much else. Would you rank him as an impact player? I know he had a relatively short career, but put up some good numbers.

Brian Benning - strangely, I don't remember him much at all. What kind of player was he? And was he a top four defenseman in his brief stint in LA?

Tomas Sandstrom - he had one great year in LA, but on the whole there, was he an impact player?

Any help would be appreciated

Jimmy Fox was a prototypical 80's player...all offense. extremely creative playmaker with a scoring touch. would not fair as well in today's close checking game. bad knees effectively shortened his career.

Brian Benning was an offensively minded #5-6 defenseman. didn't play defense very well. he and his brother (Jim Benning) were great, great junior players who didn't fare quite as well in the NHL.

Tomas Sandstrom was a great combination of toughness and scoring. a bigger Adam Deadmarsh with a rocket of a shot. he took (and gave) abuse every game and played through all types of injuries. fantastic player.

Tomas Sandstrom could never stay healthy, had he been healthy during his stint with the Kings, he probably would have been considered one of the better power forwards of his era.
