last year vs Boston/NYR/Philly: 2 goals in 13 games = .15 GPG
The other 69 games: 35 goals in 69 games = .5 GPG
So your trying to justify that kind of performance drop with "he's forcing Chara to chase Kessel around." You do know that Chara plays close to 30 minutes a game, while Kessel would only be around 20 minutes a game.
