By defintion, you have to be good offensively to be well rounded. Kopitar rarely created scoring chances this year (for himself or others), and most of his points were the result of being gifted coincidental assists.

Anze is playing some of the worst hockey of his career, and shouldn't be considered for any award other than Lady Byng IMO. It's very disappointing.
It has been 87 games (playoffs included) since Kopitar scored a Power Play goal. That's 311 Straight Kings PP opportunity since AK11 scored on one.

Kopitar has just 3 goals in his last 33 games.

Kopi has won just 43.7% of his faceoffs in the playoffs.

After being a +14 during the regular season, Kopi is Even in +/- in 7 Playoff Games

These aren't the numbers of an elite centerman.
