You know what killed Kane's numbers the most this year? That God-awful power play. Yeah, he's a part of that problem, too. I get that.
This year, Kaner had 54 points at even strength. Previous four years, in reverse order: 49, 59, 35, 44.
[Update to add link] http://espn.go.com/nhl/player/stats/...5/patrick-kane
So you could rather easily make the argument that Kaner's individual play, at 5-on-5, didn't actually dip at all. His overall numbers just suffered because he, and the rest of the team, couldn't do a damn thing on the power play.
Isolating even strength minutes are actually a totally acceptable and logical way of analyzing a players ture performance (see CORSI) good find.
Also his OPS took a nose dive from:
6.9 to 5.3 and was an 8.1 the stanley cup year.
DPS was a 2.2 in the stanley cup year than in order: 1.7, 1.6
Numbers trend shows a drop each year in the last 3 years.
Goals rank: 69th
Shots Taken: 21st
Shooting %: 9.1 which ranks 312
Is he elite? no
Is there potential to be elite? yes

Kane is a good hockey player,like any great player ur game has to adapt to what teams are trying to do to you. Kane was also trying to learn how to play center as well. In the end I feel that Kane will learn his paycheck.
The entire point of my post was that Kane has, historically, gotten a fair chunk of his points on the PP. Since the power play sucked this year, his PP numbers reflected that. I also said in my post that he is obviously part of the blame for that. That was it. You then took off in a direction that I don't have the map to, because my brain works still.
His OPS numbers would suffer, too, because of those facts, because OPS doesn't factor in the PP/PK/even situations, to my knowledge, just overall points.
I even said Kane wasn't an elite guy last year.
But go ahead and twist my words around again.

O beware...of Jealousy!
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.
Alot of unwarranted stuff tossed at Kruger. Kid just played his first full season in North America.
Aside from the net presence, which is a good idea too, I wish they'd start planting Kane or Sharp near the slot with their sticks on the ice and have them ready to snap wristers at the net at any time. Sometimes they'd get the puck down low to Toews in the corner, the entire defense would crash, then the slot would be wide open for someone to fire at the net. But there was never anyone there, all the Hawks players were scattered around the boards.
