Theres simply no way his shoulder is good enough to go right now. Its completely impacting his shot and finish.
I have been saying all along that something seems wonky with hsi shoulder and it does appear to be affecting his shot but tonight was the first time in a while that i was encouraged by his game. He was skating with purpose, very strong on the puck, good on the cycle, aggressive and made some beauty passes that weren't converted. You seriously need to rewatch the game, he was very good.
Admittedly though, i'm concerned about the lack of finish but if tonight is any indication, he is primed to break out of his slump any game now.
