<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Thetypicalleafsfann</b></div><div>The canes would be lucky if it was only a 3rd to dump Kotkaniemi every team in the leauge views him as a cap dump and one the worst contracts in the leauge. The only reason he a "decent chance creator" is because of the system he plays. Analytics always favor the canes yet results never do</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Caniac2000</b></div><div>Cool, then no other team in the league will have him. He's good defensively, a VERY strong chance creator. He's a very strong player that went through a mammoth cold spell. He's not a cap dump and simply watching him reaffirms that. His issue is that he went cold, but he started the season scoring at a PPG rate, which people love to forget about. He's a very strong 3C with 2C upside, he's a good value contract and he's signed long term. Teams that want him will have to pay, not the other way around.</div></div>
That's a lot of koolaid in one post. Even Brind'Amour doesn't think KK is that good - his 5v5 TOI/GP is 11th among Hurricanes forwards! That's 4th line material, for those keeping track at home. And when he's on the ice, the Canes allow more corsi, shots, goals, expected goals, scoring chances and high danger corsi. That's not the hallmark of "good defensively". Oh, and he gets 67% OZS!! That tells me two things: 1) the coaches don't trust him defensively, and 2) the fact that he allows more of everything while rarely starting in the D-zone proves them right. Appalling.
