Slow start, injured, came back early to try to help the team try to make the playoffs and couldn't do himself justice. I guess you could argue that he should just have waited to come back but it was one of those cases where it was just discomfort and not added re-injury risk.

He played at a 50 point pace before the injury and a 17 point pace after it. For parts of the year before his injury he played wing on Stastny's line and it wasn't an experiment either of them benefited from.

Hope that gives a bit information of the "disastrous" third year.
