I don't think he's coasting. I think he's changed the type of player he is to be a slow the game down type of player. I think he's a great complimentary player, and showed that he can be playing with Couts and Read when he first got here. His injuries have really put a monkey-wrench in continuing that chemistry on that line.
I think the big thing to learn from this game is how much of an impact Read can have on Couts' game. He did not play a smart game.
Also, Vinny needs to play on a different line. If Raffl is out for a few with the concussion, I'd like to see what Vinny can do on the top line, as long as he buys into being a complimentary type player for Jake and G.
