    Default Dwight King Trade Timeline-When Reality Sets in for Habs Fans

    This was an amusing read.....

    Watch as the Optimism in the Dwight King scouting reports starts to sink in and change into the stark realism of what his real-life skill set actually is. Note as well, that the Habs fans critique mirror the LGK fans critiques almost verbatum. You can see the shift as the comments from March 02 go into March 10. What a difference 8 days and 3 games make.

    As I said in the other thread (the one where he got traded), it was only a matter of time until he gets healthy scratched. They only care about stats there and the stats that Greg posted is not good for Kinger.

    LGK is the only place for real die-hard fans. If you're not here, you're not a die-hard. That's how I see it!

    King was anonymous in L.A. When they ship you to Montreal or Toronto, the spotlight is bright, never ending, critical, unrelenting.

    I was thinking after Saturday's game that I hadn't noticed his absence at all since the trade.

    Oh poor, Hab reference, dung heap King. Sad to see in the last few years Nolan actually trying to improve his hands, and it somewhat coming to fruition this year; he's been effective until injury! While King stayed status quo and peacefully trended downward...

    King seems like the guy who had a growth spurt and can't figure out how to use his body. He shies away from playing physical/heavy hockey, in favor of trying to be the shifty guy in the corners, a la Justin Williams. At some point, someone may want to point out to him that he's 6'3 and built like a tank...

    The fact that King left a system that was perfect for him does not bode well for his play elsewhere

    I just love all you naysayers beating his game to death.

    It just goes to show you really don't understand why he was such a useful player.

    Go back to playing NHL17 on the Xbox and stop watching hockey.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
