Off the top of my head.... Smid, Petry, RNH, Eberle have all clearly regressed.
Dubnyk has levelled off. The vets outside of Horcoff and Hemsky have gotten worse which i didn't think was possible. Hall is probably better although even he seems off the last couple of games.
Even the rookies look awful compared to other top rookies and if anything Justin has regressed badly as the season has worn on. Yakupov just isn't getting any opportunity.
I can't think of any positives outside of Gagner's development (which was bound to happen at some point) and Paajarvi somewhat that Krueger has brought to this team. Not one.
