So, what you're saying is ... you don't like him?

Is it any surprise that a guy produces less when he isn't playing with Joe Thornton? It's no secret that players like Thornton make everyone around them better - that's why they are superstar players. Pavelski is a well above average two-way forward in the NHL, and is at least equal to a guy like Brandon Dubinsky. Don't be surprised when Dubinsky produces less with the Jackets since, you know, he won't be on a team with Brad Richards or Marian Gaborik.
