I have a bad feeling that it is his back. If you watch him skate he looks like he is in pain. When I was playing juniors I had trouble in my L-4/L-5 area and while I could skate I could not generate any power while pushing off. I was a goalie so there is a difference but I see a lot similarities to the trouble I was having. I am not comparing myself to a NHL player but I do know what it is like to have back issues while playing and it was ultimately the reason I decided to not play (D3).

One thing that might be a difference in the playoffs could be that he is willing to take a pain shot to help with the pain but he is not willing to do that during the regular season. If this is the case I can completely understand his troubles. Just my thoughts.
