A member of the organization spoke out about Jesperi Kotkaniemi's shot

Just yesterday, Thursday night, we wrote an article about Jesperi Kotkaniemi, in which we praised the young man. After all, he's only 21 years old and has shown time and time again how much potential he has.

That being said, instead of shouting that "KK" is not the right man to play the second center role, can we give the runner a chance? If Dominique Ducharme knows the qualities of his youngster, which is certainly the case, he must find him the wingers that will allow him to come out of his shell and install consistency in his game.

According to a member of the organization, Kotkaniemi has the third heaviest shot of the group, after newcomer Mike Hoffman and Tyler Toffoli. His shot would be as heavy, if not heavier, than Toffoli's, so he needs to use it more. Then, the coaches, on the other hand, need to give him the elements to use his shot to the fullest. Jonathan Drouin, for example? We're talking here...

Grant McCagg went even further. McCagg believes that "KK" can easily reach 40 points with a point forward (passer) and a good shooter at his side for 82 games. So if I understand correctly, the second unit could be Mike Hoffman, Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Jonathan Drouin? Who knows!!!
