It's sort of sad, I have to think it has to do something with our personal, system, or something that causes a lot of players to degrees so quickly. I mean Svatos went from a 30 goal guy to out of the league a few years later, Wolski, etc..
I don't think you'll get much of an argument from anyone. I still believe that it's possible for him to get back to the level he was once at though.

I see it quite simply this way:

- coaching staff / systems
- lack of quality wingers
- scoring is DOWN league-wide

2009-10 - 244 GF - 95PTS (12th) | 81GP 20G 59A 79PTS
2008-09 - 199 GF - 69PTS (28th) | 45GP 11G 25A 36PTS
2007-08 - 231 GF - 95PTS (10th) | 66GP 24G 47A 71PTS
2006-07 - 272 GF - 95PTS (14th) | 82GP 28G 50A 78PTS |

As you can see from the stats above, when the Avs are poor as a team, his stats are affected. SHOCKER. You could make the argument that we have a worst team because he's not producing but that's IF you want to pin the entire teams misfortunes on one player.
