Some people just look on the last-name not on the way they play.

15 hits (5-th on team) 2-nd after 7 games
5 Take-aways
1 Give-away (best positive ratio on team shared with Spaling after 7 games, shared with Erat after 9)
+3
I wouldn't call it bad defensive play or tons of turn-overs that supposedly would be created like M.Crowford suggested on TSN.
Yes they could score, but they didn't. To win tho you need to score
Plus, if I'm not mistaken, the Preds have only conceeded one goal in the playoffs this year when AK is on the ice. Now obviously that isn't entirely down to him, but the Preds have done pretty well when he has been on the ice and he has played his part in that. He hasn't been creating fires on the ice that his teammates have had to put out and has helped correct some of the errors some of his teammates have made (that Weber giveaway against Detroit deep in the defensive zone comes to mind).
