Roenick's age should not be used as an excuse. He needs to get himself out of this funk, not blame equipment. Take a look at Joe Sakic, who is a year older than Roenick. He also didn't play during the lockout, and he has also started slow. But Sakic has still managed to be a point-per-game player.

The problem with JR is that his level of play and production has slowly deteriorated over the past couple of seasons. I guess the number of concussions has taken a toll on him physically and emotionally. He just no longer appears to be the same old cocky, arrogant and talented JR who could backup his mouth with his play.
