I definitely think he's past his prime, just a gut feeling I have. As far as what has caused him to decline, I'm not really sure. Could be the contract, could be the suspensions, could be that he was on roids, could be that his style has been figured out, could be that the Caps have changed their system. Regardless of what it is, I think we've seen his peak which is a damn shame because he was a ton of fun to watch during it and (back then) it seemed like he wasn't going to slow down like he has.

Still a great player though, but no longer do I consider him part of the "Big 3" and Stamkos has replaced him at this point.
