Especially with his chemistry with Ovechkin. Kozlov is better suited for the RW slot than center, and I think we'll probably see him there before January (depending on how soon Backstrom moves to the center spot).

Also, calling a 23-year-old prospect a "bad option" before he's given the ice time to actually prove himself is a bit premature (and Andrew Gordon--a guy who got 45 points in 40 games in a Division I-winning hockey program last season--is waiting in Hershey, as well as the possiblity of moving Pettinger up, since he played RW last season. There are a few options, and only one needs to work).
