If you're gonna pick a player that's declining, try using one that's actually declining, because if you watch him play St. Louis is still an amazing talent, and even more amazing considering his size

I guess what I'm saying is that I hope Spezza declines as much as you think Martin St. Louis has when he's 35
Stamkos has a career season and scores an insane amount of goals... and St. Louis' production goes down 25 points to 74. Yes, I would call that a decline, right after his 35 year old season, surprise surprise.

Not to mention his defensive game has severely diminished.

Here are some telling stats over that period Kuba

Nots saying Kuba is bad, just that playing with Karlsson has inflated his stats (not really unexpected).
For sure I agree Kuba has inflated stats. But his good stats are no way 100% due to Karlsson.
