Lol, you made this assumption off what? The first 17 games? Where the whole team was struggling to score goals? Petersson made a lot of chances for himself but he has two huge faults:

1)He tries to do so much. Rather than using his linemates he starts dangling the entire team.
2)He doesn't use his IQ all that much as well as he did a year ago making his size a huge downside when he chances the puck instead of using his smarts to pass defenders.

His hustle was there as well as his work ethic.
