I think all of this is just a discussion...sounds like you are taking it personally. Just because Kopitar was one of the main factors for this team winning the cup last year, doesn't mean we, as fans, shouldn't be concerned when he looks like a TOTALLY different player just one season later. Doesn't mean a debate isn't warranted when the guy goes through 30+ game scoring droughts.

Is he 'elite'? I don't know, he sure looked it in the 2012 playoffs. Think about it, he played so friggin poorly in the last 3 months, every single person watching him was convinced he had an injury. Not worthy of a thread? Ok....
