Struggling Superstars

Some interesting numbers since last year's Olympics, as we have half a season's worth of combined numbers to look at. As some stars such as Crosby and Stamkos are thriving, many have continued a post-Olympic let down into this season.

Since the Games (GP-G-A-Pts);

Alex Ovechkin 40-18-28-46
A full season pace of less than 40 goals, definitely not what we've come to expect from Ovie.

Evgeni Malkin 33-13-19-33
A point per game pace is far below what Malkin produced over his first few seasons.

Jarome Iginla 40-14-15-29
The streaky-one just may finally be coming out of a real cold stretch.

Ilya Kovalchuk 41-13-19-32
Safe to say, not quite what the Devils expected when they signed him long term.

Miikka Kiprusoff 16-19-2 2.77 GAA
His and Calgary's struggles started long before this season started.

Roberto Luongo (including 2010 playoffs) 24-21-4 3.08 GAA
A just over .500 record with a below average GAA is not going to take the Canucks to the promised land.

One other note, over his last 48 regular season games (since Feb 1, 2010) Henrik Sedin has scored a total of 6 goals. Mind you, he also has 52 assists over that time. A 10 goal full season pace which is however somewhat surprising since he started last season with 25 goals in 54 games.
