Guys, what's up with Eriksson and Benn?

Just flipping through some stats and noticed that Eriksson and Benn have been invisible on the scoresheet, quite the contrast from the beginning of the year where they were lighting it up.

Eriksson has gone pointless and a -7 in the last 5, and only 2 pts in the last 8. What gives? Are they playing injured? Who are they playing with right now?

They are both seriously slumping and there are no real injury issues that I have heard of. Benn is adding to the problems by trying to do everything himself even more than he usually does. Honestly part of the problem may be teams have realized if you key on him so he can't beat you 1 on 1 his effectiveness is greatly diminished. He really needs to learn to make better use of his linemates.

Loui isn't scoring because he needs a talented center who knows how to pass.

Benn isn't scoring because he isn't as good as you guys think he is.

Again, where were you when both of them were red hot earlier in the year? Thats right, nowhere to be seen.

They're struggling because they're both pure goal scorers. That line needs a playmaking Center or winger.

This right here. People expecting 75+ points out of Benn were being completely unrealistic considering his linemates.

Everyone thought Benn was going to turn into Getzlaf and Perry combined. Oh, and that's not a slight on his linemates or Benn.

Benn and Ryder are really kind of similar in my eyes...

Sooo what are we giving up for Ales Hemsky?
