What Happened to the AHL's Top Goal Scorer?

Cammy finished the season with the AHL's best season record for the most goals scored: 46. That's just over 1 goal every 2 games. He finished second for total scoring points with 109 points, which is 1.3 pts per game. So far in the 1st playoff round, Cammy ranks tied for 15th in total points and tied for 44th in goals scored.

With 5 games you'd expect to see 2 - maybe 3 - goals; he has 1. In overall points he's statistically where he should be: we'd expect 5 and he has 4. I expected more from Cammy during the playoffs.

Here's a scoring summary for the last 5 games (we won those games where Cammy scored 2 points):

Game 1:
Parros from Grebeshkov

Game 2 (win):
Brown from Rullier and TK
Cammy from Grebeshkov and TK
Clarke from Ryan and Holland
Schmidt from Cammy

Game 3:
Steckel from Grebeshkov and TK
Brown from TK and Smyth

Game 4 (win):
Smyth from Cammy and Brown
Brown from Cammy and TK
Holland from Grebeshkov and TK

Game 5:
Brown from Cammy and Parros
Brown from TK and Weaver

Ranked by points:
Brown: 5 goals, 1 assist
TK: 6 assists
Cammy: 1 goal, 4 assists
Grebs: 4 assists
Holland: 1 goal, 1 assist
Parros: 1 goal, 1 assist
Smyth: 1 goal, 1 assist
Clarke: 1 goal
Rullier: 1 assist
Ryan: 1 assist
Schmidt: 1 goal
Steckel: 1 goal
Weaver: 1 assist

You have the luxury of being able to see the games. Do they have their Top D-man or a defensive forward shadowing Cammy?

No more than they ever have. He was a scoring threat all season and they always shadowed him, or tried to.

He just doesn't seem to be playing the same game he played during the regular season. He's had a signature shot that has been very effective for him all season: cycling in the right wing face-off circle until the play begins to setup, and he goes down low onto one knee and blasts one into the upper corner of the net. He hasn't even gotten into position to attempt that shot all during the playoffs.

My opinion, it's like when he went to LA last year (or was it the year before) and he came out like a ball of fire, then laid back and coasted. He seems to be coasting after having a very successful regular season.

I just looked over the stats you posted. Brown is having a monster of a series.

There's a few other teams where players that have reguarly carried the offense, aren't producing during the playoffs. Jason Spezza has managed just one goal, Jon Sim (led Philadelphia in goals) now has one in four games, Michel Ouellet of WBS had thirty-one goals and now has scored once. Low scoring is just the playoff trademark and should be expected no matter who's playing.

Plus teams turn up the intensity and stick to a game plan throughout a whole series while though a game it constantly changes.

You mean like Dustin Brown and his 5 goals, 1 assist?
Or are you going to say he's the exception?

I don't buy it. Everyone's intensity level should be up, defenders and forwards alike. I don't believe that low scoring is necessarily a bellweather of playoff hockey. If you could see Cammy playing, you'd be scratching your head, too, wondering where his skills ran off to.

That's always been his problem...back to college. And it's why he remains a good but nowhere NEAR sure-thing prospect in my book. He needs to show he's willing to play hard when it's hard to play hard. As far as I've seen, he has yet to do that in his pro career.

As much as I like Cammy, this is a pretty good point jt.

My heart just sank as I read that. I was REALLY hoping that he had PERMANENTLY turned the corner...actually I still do, but I'm just not as optimistic as I was a month ago. I hope he learns from the team's failures (again) this year...I hope he learns from Dustin Brown...I hope they all do.

Are you guys friggin' kidding me? He has five points in five playoff games and you're complaining?

A) Five games is not a large sample size.
B) He's got a point per game.

Shake your head all you want, he's still not playing to his potential which is one reason why we're likely not to make it out of the first playoff series round yet again. He's capable of much more than he's producing. The stats show it and those of us lucky enough to actually watch the games know it.

to totally blame Cammalleri is wrong IMO. It was a total team crappy effort in games 1 and 3. You want to point the blame? point the blame on BB not having his team ready to play from the Garon, to Cammy to everyone out.
If it wasnt for Dustin Brown we all would be saying yet another first round failure. He is the only guy I will not blame, yeah he took that penalty in game 5. fine. without everything else he has done we would be golfing.

I stand by everything I've said, which is basically that Cammy hasn't performed to his potential when the team has needed him most. He's coasting and it is, in fact, one reason - not THE reason - we will likely not make it into the second round. Clearly we've had defensive and netminder failures and taken all together have resulted in the miserable losses during the post-season playoffs.

Well when the defense in front of him has been playing poorly, what do you expect?

I'm with ya. People can try to say Cammy is without blame and that his 5 points is hunky-dory but I don't buy it. Getting assists off another guy's hard work after scoring 46 goals isn't good enough for me.
