And Shattenkirk is also 24... Does his defensive game keep getting better but EJ can't get back to 40 points?

Shattenkirk is 9 months younger, and has had two 43 point seasons. He is playing on a team that has scored 21 more goals in 2 more games. He has like 9 secondary assists. He went from being -7 to +11 in the same season, but playing on two different teams. You don't see how the situations they are in influence the numbers?

Shatty put up 43 points at 21. EJ put up 39. The potential is there. I don't see how you can say otherwise.
