It's hard for me to understand why his play has dropped off so much this year.

Was it the lockout? Maybe, but he should have his legs underneath him by now after 35 games.
Is it Torts? Probably not, Torts has put him out there with Nash and Gaborik throughout the year and he's still not producing.
Is it the system? Can't be, he had 66 points last year in the same system.
Has he just been snake-bitten and unlucky? He hasn't caught many breaks this year, not a good excuse though.
Is it all mental/personal issues? Possibly
Is he hiding an injury? Also possible

I want an answer to this question almost as much as I want Brad to play better
