Yea...let's jerk around Kopitar some more. He is only playing like management wanted him to.
He can be great as an offensive player, great as a defensive player, Or kind of above average at both.
Kopitar has had "don't do anything dangerous in the offensive zone so we don't allow an odd-man rush" drilled into his head for years.
It's his job to watch less-creative players try and be creative so he is in position to get back on defense.
