A pretender? Just because the guy has talent and skill doesnt mean he should automatically be able to carry a line on his own. He needs someone to feed him the puck. You can get on him all you want but thats the truth. He was smothered this year. He had no space on the ice. Opposing teams can afford to defend him heavily because his linemates, and well the rest of the forwards on the team are not threats.
