It is however true that I believe you are wrong, because sample size shows that Kopitar has been able to dominate the game as long as he had good wingers (not even elite) on his line. I think that I have a little bit more to support my belief than you, but at this point we can both only believe, we can't know for sure.
Actually, you were the one making the claim in the first place. Then you covered your ass by saying that whenever Kopitar went into a slump with "good" players on his line, they weren't playing well, so that's why he wasn't scoring.

The bolded above is not true at all because his slumps have coincided with players such as Brown, Gagne, Williams, and Smyth on his line.

I never said he wouldn't score a goal another goal, I was just replying to your absurd scenario. For a guy who is supposed to be THE #1 GUY, he sure disappears for long stretches at a time each season. He's being paid as the #1 guy. He's labeled as the #1 guy. It's time for him to start BEING the #1 guy.
