The one good thing is, he's durable, so we actually have full seasons of data to look back on for comparisons.

This slump is an annual event with Kopitar. He'll start digging himself out around the 40-45 game mark.
Kind of BS though for a player that is now a vet making $6.8M in cap hit and is supposed to be the face of the franchise.

If this was Toronto, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, or Chicago he would be hearing it after every game from the media.

Every player has slumps, but this crap repeated season after season is getting old. If Kopitar doesn't shake this pattern the Kings will have a tough time being a high playoff seed in any season.

As soon as DL does what? WTH does being on a line with Brown and Richardson have to do with Kopitar's lack of willpower to take the puck to the center of the ice in the attacking zone?
