At the time it looked like Adam was dragging ass but it was just the beginning of a bad season.

I guess you can say he regressed looking at his numbers and how he and the team started to play but it's hard to pin it on Adam. He wasn't ready to play in the NHL and was basically thrown to the dogs because of the terrible center depth at the time. And then he was thrown under the bus by his head coach. It's hard for me to say he was playing poorly when it's inevitable that an NHL Rookie will fall off at some point in time, Rolston just hasn't gotten him back on track and the same is happening with McNabb.
How did Ruff throw him under the bus?
