He seems to have lost a passion for the game that he once had, but a 40 game stretch will change opinions around here

Actually it seems most players these days peak earlier. I think Ovy's best days ARE behind him. Not to say he wont still be very good but his 55+ goal days are gone IMO.
Vincent L is another example of a great player that faded to good pretty early. I think the guys that have great talent start earler and maybe lose a little of their drive earlier.
