His last 157 games (including playoffs) he's had 159 points. I'd be surprised if he didn't get to 80-85 points this year. He's got 37 games to score 28 points in order to be at a ppg.
Im aware of that. I always used that statistic. It was actually around 163 or around that per game last time i used it lol but its dropping. He should finish over a ppg but the way he was playing before he could have won the art ross, lindsay and hart but now he probably wont get anything unless he just explodes. (unlikely but i hope).
He was injured and took him about 2 games to get back to form. If anything he's been better than Giroux the last few games. Maybe it's Giroux that should be moved to the 3rd line.
Against the Wild and the Islanders last night he was easily the best player on that line.
Point was to give Couturier more TOI. Jagr's would not change. Top line has been horrible defensively of late. Voracek would switch it up and Jagr is left with the most defensively responsible center (at least the past 10 games).
