One could just imagine how he would rank scoring wise if every top line in the league players at his % level of offensive zone starts.
As it is this will be the 3rd year his production dips, despite the protection of his minutes.
I have no idea how many times this has to be pointed out, but the zone starts didn't change till AFTER Henrik won the Art Ross. It hasn't helped them, and AV's stupidity may actually be hurting them a lot more than helping especially in the playoffs.
Makes it that much easier for coaches to throw out their 5 man units against them, when they always start in the o-zone.
