Been saying all year he needs to get up there and do what he does best. Gain some confidence playing with skilled players even if its only for those 3 minutes of ice time a game it will certainly help.

If he's on the 4th line again and not getting that PP time I think we gotta send him down.
Sending him down? Do you realize it would shake the earth in Finland, and send European economy in free fall. Sending Mikael, The son of the god, the bringer of the rain and the World Champion, to minors at this point, would not be correct at any level, as he has performed ok in most of hes last games and has been showing progress.

Just kidding. It would be annoying, but it probably is better than playing in 4th line. Hope he can get what he deserves and get more chances to play up in solid role. He has already earned it in hes earlier career but in north america, you must earn it again and again. Luckily he has improved and if they just can have trust in him and get whole team's play going, the confidence, the points and the great passes would follow.
