Kopitar isn't going anywhere unless Crosby, Malkin or Ovechkin are coming back. In other words, Kopitar isn't going anywhere.

The criticism that Kopitar gets is because everyone can see the immense talent and physical size of Kopitar, yet he disappears too much in the offensive zone. Until Murray is gone, we will not know if the cause is Murray's system or not, but Kopitar needs to drive to the front of the net way more than he does. Since Loktionov has been recalled, I've seen him in front of the net more than Kopitar, which is sad. Kopitar is a beast when he uses his size and drives right through the middle.

I wish Kopitar would give the puck to Loktionov more on the rush and just drive through the middle. That would cause a lot of problems with the defense since most of the time Kopitar will take both defenseman to the front and Loktionov has the vision to hit the third option coming from behind.
