Are Dwight King, Steve Ott, and Andreas Martinsen benefiting from Claude Julien’s system?

The lack of goal-scoring was the biggest issue facing the team at the trade deadline, but with a dearth of offensive talent available, with exorbitant prices for those who reportedly were, the additions the Canadiens made were largely of the depth variety, acquiring three fourth-line forwards. After the deadline passed without a top-six player joining the fold, the focus...

At first glance it looks like King will be a highly useful...
