I think what you miss with SK is his work on the pk and the defensive side of the puck. He is very very good in those regards.
I realize he is a decent defensive player-- though by no means dominant. I also think his uninspired play the last 15-20 games has affected his effort on both sides of the ice. He's decent defensive and good on the PK, fine, that's what 4th lines are for.

I want someone on our first line who is actually battling, making plays, creating offense, controling tempo, buzzing around out there. I'd give him one more game to show something. If he's still playing passive and uninspired, I'd have no problem demoting him to the 4th line (or bench) and throwing Wilson in his place.
