I'm not trying to make excuses for AA, but when was the last time he saw meaningful minutes on the PP? As bad as our PP has been, I've seen Torts roll out Rupp and Mitchell at times to get things going, but not Anisimov. What gives? The issue I see is that AA takes a lot of time to get off his shot, but when he does get it off he can absolutely snipe. Wouldn't that tend to work better with a little extra time and space on the PP?

Is he struggling because he hasn't been put in a position to succeed (playing with grinders) or because he's hit a wall in his development? I feel the answer lies somewhere in between the two, as I recall him having success in the past with Prust on a grind line. Seems as though his confidence is down and has been since early in the season.

The pack line will be together come playoff time, you can lock it up.
I wholeheartedly agree with this... Our lines have lacked chemistry and the ones that worked need to be brought back together.
