That said, I don't advocate trading AK or making this downgrade in general. Just saying *if* management was going to go that route...
As much as he was a solid contributor last year, I don't see AK bringing back in value what he can contribute on the ice. I like the idea of sticking him with Eller and challenging him to dominate and force his way into the top 6.
