He has had a sophmore slump. I don't think any Ducks fan would deny that. However, he's still 20, and is starting to play better in the AHL. No one should give up on him because if he ever figures it out he could be a hitting machine. Personally, I think his offensive tools were overrated by some Ducks fans last year. I see him as a 3rd liner with hopefully a couple 20-20 season. I do not see him as a 60 point winger at all. The bottom line with DSP is that if he isn't hitting, he just isn't very good. I hope he realizes that by next year and earns a spot on our 4th line
