WRONG Howard Berger, sophomore slumps are not a good, normal nor an excusable thing. These fools are paid to perform, and no one is taking a third year bounce back as a give.
Please explain to Steven Stamkos, Tyler Seguin, Jonathan Toews, Erik Karlsson, Pat Kane, Alex Pietrangelo, Jordan Eberle, Jamie Benn, Ryan O'Reilly, Tuukka Rask, Nicklas Backstrom, Pekka Rinne, Drew Doughty etc. what the sophomore slump is.
Is the sophomore slump inspired by Staal's 100 point season (career high) and Stanley Cup or Crosby's 120 points (career high) or Malkin's 106 points (2nd highest)?
Someone better warn Brad Marchand, Derek Stepan, and Logan Couture.
The worst part about about "the sophomore slump" is that it's just circular. Second-year player is playing poorly = the sophomore slump!
Some players have "sophomore slumps," but most improve from their rookie seasons.
