This Means... Something

-Haha, look at that guy in front of us, Anze! -Sorry Drew, I'm looking at that guy on the other side of this monitor. Hey you! Stop resting your chin on your hand! (Photo by Jeff Gross/Getty Images)


Drew Doughty, Year 1: 81 GP, 6 G, 21 A, 27 P (11 EV, 16 PP), .048 SH%

Anze Kopitar, Year 1: 72 GP, 20 G, 41 A, 61 P (32 EV, 29 PP0, .104 SH%

 

Drew Doughty, Year 2: 82 GP, 16 G, 43 A, 59 P (28 EV, 31 PP), .113 SH%

Anze Kopitar, Year 2: 82 GP, 32 G, 45 A, 77 P (43 EV, 34 PP), .159 SH%

 

Drew Doughty, Year 3: 76 GP, 11 G, 29 A, 40 P (25 EV, 15 PP), .079 SH%

Anze Kopitar, Year 3: 82 GP, 27 G, 39 A, 66 P (43 EV, 23 PP), .115 SH%

 

(Here is where Doughty now lies; this is also when Kopitar's $6.8 million/year deal kicked in)

 

Anze Kopitar, Year 4: 82 GP, 34 G, 47 A, 81 P (43 EV, 38 PP), .131 SH%

 

Anze Kopitar, Year 5: 75 GP, 25 G, 48 A, 73 P (55 EV (!), 18 PP), .107 SH%

 

I think the thing we're supposed to take away is that Kopitar had a "down" offensive  in his 3rd year that was mostly driven by a lack of production on the power play, but that wasn't really his fault and he was fine after that. Doughty will probably be the same way. It also means that everyone probably would have freaked the fuck out if Kopitar had been given his deal after that third season rather than in October.
