At the moment they're being underutilized because they're having a very ugly time of it. Nikitin's puck luck, in particular, is enough to convert one to belief in voodoo curses. And he's unfortunately not handling the adversity as well as we'd like.

They're both highly valued players we want to keep. But that doesn't take away from what JMFJ has been doing ever since he came to Columbus. It's like how Carter's play was night and day when he was without/with Mike Richards, only with JMFJ the catalyst seems to have been being in the Midwest with James Wisniewski.
