ive been calling it for years that this would happen.

People are so adamant to fight the fact he's declining. He does the same things game after game. Coaches and players adapted to his style, and he's been declining and now its finally taking a toll on his production because he's not a super human on the ice anymore. He's dropped down to their level and they can counter him finally

Has it ever occured to any of you that he could just be burning out? How many players burn out before they're 30? How many players have came into the league on fire and then just lost alot of their production, staying good players but never at the level they were before?

All the time. He isn't going to roar back, he is just going through what 75% of players go through. Not everyone has a prime or the athleticism until their mid 30s or more.

It happens

Example: Malkins game is mentality and athleticism. Ovechkins is all athleticism. Malkin can still outsmart players with creativity, Ovechkin will just keep trying to power through them with whats worked before.
