Cooke's 4 points in 12 games would put him on-pace for 27 points in a full season. Last season was his career high at 38, but he looks to be about a 30 point player (last season he played on Crosby's line a few times which probably accounted for most, if not all, of the extra production past 30). So he is really just slightly under where he should be.

But yes, I agree with the TK assessment. He needs to produce more.
TK definitely needs to step up. Not sure what's up with him, but its a problem. Maybe he's just struggling. I wonder if he's playing hurt and is afraid of losing his spot to any of the number of guys waiting for a spot to open so he is trying to play through it? Or if he simply gets more attention with Staal gone.

I think it should be Despres too.
