He still has 18 points thru 25 games. At the start of season, would any of us be disappointed in knowing that? It's funny how point production started to dropoff right when his two linemates were ripped away.
His production started to disappear in the middle of that road trip, which is well before Ryan was taken off that line. He has 4 points and is a -6 in the last 15 games. He's clearly tired.
He has had a great number of scoring opportunities as well. Not sure if its just bad luck or he has lost his sniping abilities. His puck handling abilities has also at times been not good (to say the least)
He has always said he would know when to hang up the skates. Well, he seems to have lost a step in the last few weeks. Don't know if there is some other explanation for it, but barring the possibility that he caught that dad-gum flu that has crippled me, I'd say, he old.
Nothing wrong with that, and it sure has been a long time coming. I hope they win the cup for him in his last year.
