Not really sure about that. My concern with Kopitar doesn't have to do with getting glorious scoring chances. It's been that when he's got some time and space (more than enough for "normal" Kopitar), passes are bouncing off his stick, he's not strong on the boards, missing guys with passes, and he's constantly flubbing his clearing attempts from the defensive zone.
