Standard regression with age, unlucky year in terms of sh%, playing in a tire fire team, having no chemistry with top players. All adds up to a nightmare season. Should be a solid 20 goal 50 point scorer in a better environment.

BRUTAL signing by the Canucks. A rebuilding team giving a guy in his 30's a 6 year deal? And Desjardins was fired you say?

His bad first year in Boston was due to injuries. He'll never score again like he did in his UFA year.

What kind of injuries? was he playing injured or something because he got 10 or 11 goals in 60 gp which is similar to this season

I think 20-25---20-25 is doable if things goes right.. he does most of his scoring around the net and tip ins I believe

Hopefully a new coach lights him up again.

Back to back concussions in 2013.

According to the Bruins, Eriksson suffered a concussion on the play. It is his second of the season as he was also concussed on a hit from John Scott that earned the Buffalo Sabres enforcer a seven-game suspension

Same game Thornton went after Orpik

He had his best seasons with Ribeiro,Richards and Krejci. If you give him a top center and allow him to adjust,he'll give you 25-30 goals next year. The UFA thing is an insult. He had 3 other seasons of 60-70 points. Many people had off years during the strike season,then he had 2 concussions and after fully healthy was saddled with Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg. No one would thrive offensively with them.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^This, but before the concussions he seemed tentative and a little confused at the system that the Bruins played. He was somewhat sheepish when he was interviewed by B's management (if I had the time I would find the interview on YouTube). The concussions ruined him for his first 2 years here IMO and also he (again my opinion) tried to rush back before he was ready so the second concussion was a terrific blow. He never really fit here for whatever reason but in his UFA season he left it all out on the ice and played his ass off. I hope that he can get back to form, he's a very nice gentleman and although I was disapointed in his time here nevertheless that wasn't his fault as much as circumstances. I'd say 50/50 on regaining his form. I would put him out there with linemates who can hit and (in a sense) be physical to give him the room to operate, but that's just me.

Exactly, it's the Canucks team as a whole.

Eriksson on a contender would have had over 50 points.

Was he expected to be a driver of offense at this point in his career? In any case, seems like he'd be a good buy-low candidate in a trade scenario if Vancouver has someone they need or want to spend the cap space on (e.g. Horvat? Boeser? Don't know any other names in their system).

He looked lost even before his injury when he first came to Boston (albeit in a very small sample size), and it took him a while to adjust, but being on pace for 30 points seems like a different story. First year in Boston he was still on pace for 50 points in an injury-plagued year. He's a complementary player that needs good players around him though. He knows where to be both offensively and defensively, but he doesn't have the ability to create much of anything on his own.

Most folks just have a inaccurate idea of what a players "prime years" are - ie lots of folks seem to think 30-32ish years of age is still "prime territory".

For most forwards they've had their best offensive year by the age of 26 and start to decline by 29. Sometimes players quite rapidly decline once they get north of 30 too.

GMs should wise up to this before giving vets this huge deals

Just curious would you do Brouwer for Eriksson straight up?

Hes going to be 32. His career is definitely on the downswing. The Canucks grossly overpayed him to try and make the playoffs and it backfired horribly.

Probably not. Even though it's $4.5 million per for 3 years rather than $ 6 million per for 5 years, I just think Eriksson is a much better player, even if he's struggling. Don't want a part of either one of them though. 1 or 2 years down the road when Brouwer's contract is more manageable, absolutely.
