While Andrei was starting to play amazing, because of this it seemed cammy's goal scoring started to subside as he started to try to get the puck to andrei more
why i think sergei will make this line RLy good is sergei is way more of a passer then andrei (and dagostini for crissake), and i see sergei feeding cammy alot better then andrei could and feeding pleks too for that matter, while andrei is more of a sniper type of player even tho he still can deliver one hell of a pass
but, it sucks for us bigtime, andrei can be our most dynamic player some games, the whole sergei experiment is just hypothetical for now, but i think itll pan out for us bigtime, it just "fits"
The problem is that Sergei is injured as well. He has an ankle injury which I believe he's been playing with since he was checked oddly in the anniversary game and twisted his ankle. If it's a high ankle sprain then it's going to dog him for a while if he doesn't take care of it fine. It would be nice as a fan to know what his injury is, but I do understand the NHL's policy regarding releasing this kind of information.
I worry about this injury, but if we were able to survive Markov and Gionta, then I think/hope we can tough this out. But as another poster said, Akost brought a dimension to that top 6 that no other player does, and that is to play physical, and basically be a force to the net. He opened up a ton of space for Cammy and Pleks, a ton. As much as I love Sergei, and have high hopes for the kid, that is not something that Sergei will be able to do.
The biggest thing that we need to be concerned about though is if Sergei is anywhere close to being healthy.
