Going to the net he had to learn - he was being easily pushed out or making the decision to go wide too often. That I think is a big reason for his improved scoring later in the season.

All that said, wow there's a lot of jumping the gun in here - every bit as much as was going on by those reminding evryone about Calvert & Filatov's hattys.
Looking back at my post, I definitely could have worded that better.

I think the difference between Atkinson's hattrick and the other two is that, if I recall the specific games, the other two didnt seem to dominate the game and fly all over the ice as Cam does. You could argue that Calvert did, but I seem to remember a lot of his goals being very fluky.
