I wouldn't call last season a disappointment. He was streaky and didn't do much after his injury, but he still had a solid year overall, especially for an undrafted guy.
This year has been different though. He's been consistently invisible and hasn't brought anything to the lineup when he's been in it. I think there's a reason he's been so much worse the 2nd half of last year and so far this year and that's his role became too much for him to handle and he also hasn't found any real chemistry with anybody since the Buzz Line broke up .
I think chemistry can be a big thing for any player. Staal looks a lot better with Cooke and Kennedy than anybody else. Crosby has that with Kunitz and Dupuis and Malkin had that with Sykora and then struggled mightily to find chemistry with anybody else after Sykora's game fell off the face of the earth and the Pens let him go.
