Habs fan coming in peace: I got thinking about how KK could have looked under a coach like St. Louis and I want to know what's the deal with Jesperi Kotkaniemi?
He is having a career year (2.2 P/60 and 11 goals already, his rookie season with MTL he had 1.9 P/60 and 11 goals total), yet his average icetime is a career low, 12:07.
I know Carolina has a deep team, but it still doesn't explain to me why a player that is performing this well (and a player that is young and still improving) is 12th in ATOI for forwards, not to mention Carolina invested a 1st, 3rd, and $6.1M (7.5% of the cap, 3rd highest on the team) in this player. So what's going on? Is this a tactic for a contract negotiation, is Carolina trying to limit KK's value? Does Rod not like him as a player?
What is the plan for KK after his one year deal expires?
