Well you can choose to believe that, but you cannot deny how fatigue may also actually be a factor. From what I saw, he was looked sloppier out there and Julien is not the one who made me see this. Not at all. I put KK's rookie year more in line with Galch's especially considering his return from a year off. Kopitar was a beast, KK is not comparable to him because he played less and had crappier wingers at 18. Come on now. Sure. But his offensive game needs quite a bit of growing if he is to be a top line center. It is a question mark whether you want to admit it or not. KK is not a shoe in to be a top center. Not to me. He needs to develop his offensive game more for that to happen.
