I agree he probably needs a little more rest, but "lately" is a relative term. For the 4 games before this roadtrip, he has been anything but average and a big reason they won those games.

He has been more pedestrian the last 2 games, but not all of that is on him (puck off Wallin's skate in Edmonton, guy (Gagner) wide open in the slot, 2 on 1 in Calgary due to Pitkanen mistake). I think he has been average the last 2 games..but very good the 4 before that.

Maybe the reason he's been average is this "upper body" injury affecting his play. Not making excuses, just speculating.
