I just want to see what you guys think about this... and is it because last game we did alot of penalties and we were on the PK for quite some time, or is it because JM is just purely an AK hater no matter how good he plays?
The four wingers who are averaging more PP time on ice than AKost are Gionta, Pacioretty, Cammalleri and Cole. Despite what some people say, he's averaging more PP time on ice than Darche.
Even though I'm sure that some people think this is evidence of JM hating on AKost, it's pretty obvious that he's temporarily caught in a numbers game and is one injury or stretch of PP inefficiency away from getting more time on one of the top units.
There's a clear problem with only looking at PP/TOI over the last two games. Most notably that last night the Habs had two powerplays and they overlapped. Not a lot of minutes were available to go around.
