Aaltonen is NOT a penalty killer, I think we can all agree to that. And if his contributions on PP are what we've seen so far, he has no role in that department either.

If you wish to mess up the opponent's game and hopefully draw someone into the box, you send Leo Komarov out there. Not Juhamatti Aaltonen.
