I have thought the last week Arkhi was putting more into his game - though nothing really to brag about. It appeared to me he was being demoted to the 4th line when he initially went out last night (with Toots & Mac). He ended up with quite a bit more ice time then they did. Anyway, maybe it takes a demotion to light some fire in his play. I'm not as ready to give up on him as some. The talent is there if you can get it out of him.
Agreed I am not ready to give up on him yet neither. He is a big center with good speed. He looks to be trying too hard out there offensively. He is still looking decent defensively on face-offs. He does have 10 pts.
