I hope he can improve as well but he must engage to do so. Near the end of his second line tryout he appeared to be just skating around and watching instead of engaging in the games. Arniel is assessing his play correctly; a month or two on the fourth line will do him some good. I hope to see at least 10 minutes of ice time though, anything less will simply "Brule" him.

Arniel needs to give Nikki some first or second line PP time, he can be effective with a lot of open ice in an offensive setting.
