I think simmonds will be just fine, he doesnt play a complicated game, just needs to be in front of the net making some things happen and he will get his confidence back.
I think what's happening with Simmonds is like what happens with power forwards, their goal totals fluctuate from year to year. Ryan Clowe is another guy that comes to mind as going thru a really bad stretch. These guys aren't pure goal scoring snipers, so it is only reasonable to think they could struggle at times.
