30 goals was when he was our main sniper and played with Koivu. He was the first guy we wanted out there on the PP. Since then Higgins, Ryder, Kovalev have all surpassed him on the depth chart and now we wonder why he only pots 16 [most likely 20 if he played the whole season]. It's 10 less goals in a season because that's 2 or 3 or 4 minutes less he plays every night due to Higgins, Ryder, Kovalev all surpassing him.

It's not that he sucks all of the sudden, it's that like most players, they score the most when given the most PP time playing with the best centre on the team.

I'll admit he started pissing me off last season too with his 3 moves that we could always see coming, but it's not as if he'll be a 30 goal guy on this team again. Not with Ryder, Kovalev, Higgins, Perezhogin, Kostitsyn...Elias...
