Artie has been opportunistic at time but Torts has been giving him a lot of **** throughout the playoffs. Some of it may not be fair--as playing him on the right wing on occasion is putting him out of his element IMO. That being said Artie is more of a skill guy than a grit guy and grit is important especially if your on the bottom lines. He's gone back and forth between top 6 and bottom 6 but he's only got 15 shots in 18 games--that with being blamed for some defensive lapses is kind of why he's in Tort's doghouse IMO. I think as in Gaborik's case Torts thinks he's capable of more than he's given.
