I have watched the Flames over the last two weeks and at times you have to watch closely to notice Jerome.

Could be:

1. he is uninspired and is just playing out the string on a lousy team?

2. as Sportsnet John Shannon surmised he has lost a step and his scoring touch around the net?

3. that he didn't play during the lockout and is nursing aches and pains as he finally rounds into shape?
