In all fairness to Zednik, he did miss many games this season, which may be one of the contributing factor for his struggle... I am not saying that the only factor, but it certainly didn't help. Who knows, didn't he have a kid this year? Maybe that got to tire him out... He also played in the Olympics... we all know it can slow down a guy too.

He missed quite a few games at the beginnning of the season and it is tough to catch up with other players at the beginning of a season.

Yet, while he had an off year, his 16 goals in 67, is close to 20 goals in 82.

Looking at his recent year production... I think it is fair to portray him as a 25 goal scorer.

Heck, with his upcoming free agency coming (again, correct me if I am wrong)... He should have a good year.

I was giving additional thoughts in regards to trading Zednik... We could indeed wait to see where Bulis signs... hopefully in a team that could use Zednik down the road... and have Bulis brag to his new team owners about how really good his Zednik buddy his... and meanwhile Zednik giving 100% in order to get his next UFA contract... his value will raise. Again, that same team is more likely to sign him, since he might want to stay with his buddy.
