McD took a step back this year. But this isn't entirely unexpected. He isn't engaging as consistently and forcing himself onto the outcome of the game like he did last season. No amazing passes, no slashes toward the net, and he hasn't played nearly as physical. Last season he held the puck through the neutral zone and was making some great plays at the opposing blue line. This year the puck is off his stick long before then, and all too often onto the stick of a player standing still or about to skate into traffic.
