That's exactly where he needs to be. He's been great there all season. Like I said, I'm not bashing the guy for one night. He needs to be put in position to make things happen and he does that down low, not on the point.
When he plays the half boards he can make plays to the point, to guy down low who tries to feed the man in front usually, or skate to the circle and snap one far side while the goalie is hugging the post.
I'm not bashing Recchi, just the coaches need to put him where he is least effective.
