When I see Duchene I don't see a player that is forced to play in a way that doesn't fit him. I see a player struggling to use his abilities in a useful way. The puck bounces off his stick, he doesn't get his shots off and he has a hard time getting to the scoring areas.
Exactly. And he throws the puck away too often to be a player that gets significant ice time.
And I would say that Stastny's effort has regressed since his first few seasons. He doesn't win as many board battles as he used to and he doesn't compete as hard. At least that is what I see.
