Give AK 17-20 minutes a game and spot him on the PP (he wasn't bad on the point... better than Plek) and he'll give you points, hits and beautiful passes. He was even backchecking pretty hard during the last few games. Mess with him and embarass him (unfairly many times) and he'll pout and stop playing well.

He is what he is. IF JM wants the best out of him, play him and treat him fairly.
Agreed and I do honestly think Martin is starting to give the ice time to the ones who deserve it the most, Kostitsyn is played 19 minutes against Buffalo just like Patches, now the only thing left is reduce Gomez's ice time and give it to Eller
