Best example was against TPS this weekend. I was on place in HK-areena watching the game. Barkov was taken out by 2 TPS players mostly and his linemates didnt do ****. I`m pretty sure he would get going again if he got players who actually can play hockey as linemates...
This might be part of the problem, but then again his line had very good start to the season, so, things are cooling down now. JVR could nevertheless be a part of the solution.
