Factor this, he averages almost 18 minutes of ice time over 3 minutes of powerplay time.

I am becoming more convinced that last year was an anomaly. If he was actually getting chances i'd be less concerned but he is unwilling to go to the net, takes low percentage shots, and losses every battle on the boards.
Last year was a "Wtf OMG HOW THE HELL PLEKANEC!!!!!!!" this year hes getting a dose of reality, as everyone in the league got faster, better at scoring, the rookies are better, and the defense is bigger. He has to either Amp it up or take a seat. He needs to be the Action man to play on the top line and right now hes the no-action man. I think hes actually playing to his potential, and that Kovalev's break out 2nd best season ever helped Plekanec sneak a few more goals and assists.
