Simply put, we don't ever....

Stastny is a playmaking Center, during his 75-80 point years he was putting up roughly 20 goals 50-60 Assists every year. A playmaking Center cant continue to put up points if his Wingers cant finnish, and this has been the case with Stastny for 1.5 Years(He's only been producing at a lower level for this long).

When Stastny was putting up higher point totals, he had goal scorers on his wings who were putting his passes in the net. His linemates this year have so far scored 2 goals. He cant put up points if his linemates cant finnish...

MAYBE, just maybe if you stopped looking solely at stats and watched a game, you would see that Stas is still setting up his linemates for quality scoring chances 2-3 times a game, but he cant help that they haven't been able to finnish....

I know, that's a crazy concept, who actually watches hockey on this forum anyway, all just a bunch of statisticians.
