Hence the bouncing. And of course it's relevant to compare him with his rivals on the team when we are debating why he's scratched, as you gave an explanation for above. He's in an absolute, and maybe also a relative slump and I have no problem with him being scratched, but if you cannot even recognice that he's been way better / the physics of a boucing ball (not sure which one) it's hard to find a starting point.
But see that's the thing. He's compiled those misleading numbers of three small sample sizes not over a 67 game span. He's never showed what he can do over a prolonged stretch.
