I do think Ovi has lost a step, but I think he can be a 100 point player again, or score 45+ with 40 assists, which would be fine by my standards. What I don't believe is that you figure a guy out after 5 seasons where he averages over 50g/season. Suddenly in season 6 you know how to defend him? Not after he has scored about 220 goals, but after 280 or something like that?

And to the argument from being neutralized in the WSH-Habs series: I get that he didn't lead his team singlehandedly to the SCF, but are people really accusing a player who scored 10 points in 7 games of being ineffective? Can someone elaborate? When would he be considered effective?
