I agree, seeing him in Edm i found him to be very frustrating, always looking to pass or deke everybody twice. He seems to skate miles but accomplishes very little. Always made bad back passes to the other team. Kovy has to find the holes and be looking for Sammys passes. Samsonov never seemed like a good linemate. Perhaps he picked up some bad habits earlier in his career when i think he would of been better suited spending some time in the AHL. Yet during his stint with the oil he registered almost a point per game in the regular season.
