A season is 82 games and Martin spoke himself of a top 9 as opposed to a top 6. That pretty much means all the 9 players can be switched around. If Cole is slow to get started and doesn't seem to click much with Plek/Cammy, then I can see Martin try to bring back AK to that duo.
Anything can happen, to think a 20G-45pt scorer can't end up on the top 6 unless it's due to injuries is rather foolish imo.
Agreed krissE, the idea is to have many interchangeable parts. I don't believe AK will start the opener in the top 6, but he'll get numerous opportunities there with or without injuries. To think otherwise is pretty absurd and shows the true bias some of our own fans have towards this player. Comments like, if he plays in the top 6 I'll eat my shirt ect are pretty uninformed and uncalled for.
