I'm hoping this allows Andrei the time to watch the games and see what he needs to do better, i.e. skate harder and hit more. He is a force when he is skating and hitting, he throws some pretty good body checks. I am thinking Gainey is happy this happened, he probably wanted to scratch him but couldn't really because we needed all the offense we could get. Hopefully this works out good ala Kovalev and Plekanec.
