I like AK, but he still hasn't put it toghether and is a UFA next year. I don't know if it's lack of hockey sense or that he hasn't bloomed yet, but I don't agree with people saying he lacks of efforts. For one thing, he needs a playmaker to carry the puck for him. Maybe that's been his problem, because he had his best season when Kovalev effectivly did that. No knock on Plekanec, but Cole is better fitted for him than Kostitsyn, as Pleks is not a pure playmaker, and AK is a pure sniper.

I'm wondering what we could get from Nashville if we allowed them to talk with him to sign an extention. Since the SK situation panned out for them, they might be interested in risking it with AK. They are trying to win now. Then, with the cap space we would have, and the assets we would get, we could try to trade for an expensive UFA.
