GKJ is right. He had a flukey year with his shooting percentage. Just like he had a flukey year in the other direction in shooting percentage in 09-10 when he scored only 14. When his shooting percentage normalizes he's more likely to be a 25 goal scorer. I'm sure most fans will hate him on again for having a disappointing year because they've created unrealistic expectations in their minds.
