He took another lazy penalty Saturday in Colorado. So I say B.S. to Arniel. Arniel is desperate for goals, and he aint getting it from Nash, Voracek, Huselius, etc. Filatov didnt work his way out of any doghouse. Arniel just realizes no one is scoring, so Filatov gets another chance. I hope Filatov succeeds.
Well, I sort of thought the same when reading about the promotion.. To be honest I've seen most of the last four games and Nikky hasn't been on the ice enough to judge much of anything imo..

We need scoring and the SO goal may have been the biggest thing to get him in Arniel's playbook. No doubt the kid can score when paired with decent players and we need scoring. Let's hope he helps us beat Montreal, if he does Arniel will look like a genius.
