Perhaps I am being too dramatic, but:
Too much talk about how he has "lost a step" and complaining
about him in general.
He's slowed down, I agree with the community, but his production is fantastic and he's still the best dman on this team. He's made up for his reduction in speed with familiarity with the game.
He'll play if he wants to play, not because of some imagined deficiencies in his game.
People complaining about Kimmo's game, speed, or whatever, are similar to people who complain about supermodels having "sharp elbows."
