Sorry to blow up your inbox but I ALSO just saw a tweet from some Columbus beat writer who quoted Bowman as saying Kane has found lots of success with different linemates over the years and Panarin was no different. AS THOUGH Panarin's just another player who has chemistry with Kane and not anything special in his own right. I am REALLY not liking the way they are treating Artemi in all this.
On here there is a good cluster of people who appreciate him and give him the attention that he deserves, but beyond that? I’ve argued it before that he wasn’t being treated fairly because he wasn’t a core member. Honestly none of the guys who weren’t there for the win streak are by other fans, beat writers, or the organization. Times change. The game changes. You’ve got to focus on the team as a whole not just certain players. Never going to win the cup again that way.
