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.
I think we have to agree to diagree. The Kostitsyn I see is battling. What I see as him reading the play, maybe you see as uninspired play, which I can understand.
