His scoring touch has been a little inconsistent to date this season but I am willing to go look at his entire time here. Sure, he has beaten up on some lesser opponents but you don't score that many goals against just them. He did score a hat trick against the big, bad Bruins. I have seen some people say he only scores against bad teams so, I finally went and looked at the numbers. I think the "just scores against the bad teams" is a misnomer:
Last year...5 vs Isles, 4 vs Flyers, 4 vs Bruins, 3 vs Sens, 3 vs Canes, 3 vs Leafs (2 or less vs rest of the league)
Against the top 15 teams (by winning %), he scored 21 of his 41 goals.
2011....in decidedly down year, 9 of his 22 came against top 15 teams.
2010...21 of his 42 came against top 15 teams. 4 vs Caps (best team based on winning %), 4 vs Isles, 3 vs Pens.
