I consider a 25 point drop-off a shocker, especially on team that was supposed to be significantly better. Personally, I thought that signaled the beginning of his decline.
People were jumping off bridges around here when Nylander didn't get the multi-year offer he demanded. He then proceeded to be the poster boy for why don't hand out multi-year 35+ contracts. It's a rule that can cripple a team's cap position if anything goes wrong and I won't support one for
