All I'm saying is don't expect him to maintain this level. It wasn't that long ago that Daugavins was being tried on the first line...
Agreed, Daugavins first 10 games were incredible to watch. Time will tell with Klinkhammer but I'm not so sure he takes Kaspars job next year. He may have more offensive tools but he isn't the same calibre checker IMO, which is the position he'll inevitably find himself.
