I think the problems that have plagued him stem from a lack of able coaching. He doesn't click with his line.

It was...

-he needed to be out of columbus to spread his wings
-he's not ready for a big market
-the fans were hard on him
-no one knocked in his great passes
-AV refused to put him on the power play
-he wanted to pay a defensive role/roles change
-he hasn't been in a lot of playoff games, so he learned this year
-people focus on the cap hit

Am I missing something?

It's probably one of those reasons. Maybe it was the refs or bettman, or Toronto, but that's in other threads already.
