Why do people insist on putting AK on the 2nd line?

He's a dominant 3rd liner. He racks up more point with 14 minutes of 3rd line icetime than 19-20 of 2nd line icetime.

What we want is maximize goal differential, and AK is at his best while facing weaker players, not being a defensive liability. Let more balanced players like a real top 6 handle the opposition's top guns. 'cause he can't.
