Paul Stastny

When Stastny signed his $6.6M contract (2009-10) he'd scored 185 pts in 193 games (0.96 PPG) and went on to 79 pts in 81 games in (2009-10). He's now dropped to 0.72 PPG the last 2 seasons (110 pts in 153 games) & folks are calling him invisible/ghost etc.

Ryan O'Reilly

Has now signed an OS and the Avs have matched that will pay him $6.5M next season. He averaged 0.36 PPG his first 2 seasons in the league (56 pts in 155 games) and improved last season to 0.68 PPG (55 pts in 81 games) for an overall average 0.45 PPG over his first 3 seasons in the league.

IMO if Staz is getting so much crap for dropping down from near 1 PPG to 0.72 PPG. ROR next season has to start showing that he has the potential to get near the 1 PPG or he & Stastny should be painted with the same brush. Maybe the locker room competition can do both good the rest of this short season & both come out ready to go at the beginning of next season.
