Then this season it just sort of disappeared and has not returned. Including playoffs, he has scored at a 13-goal, 38-point pace over 82 games, and just not looked anywhere near as impactful as he did with Columbus. Especially when the Jets needed him to be their top player in this series.
1. Nikita Kucherov, Tampa Bay Lightning. Just a dominant performance right now. He had two goals, an assist, and six shots on goal in Saturday’s win and is starting to run away with the points lead (17) this postseason. He now has a four-point lead over every other player in the playoffs. Not bad for having played zero games during the regular season.

The B’s let Krug and Chara walk because they figured they’d drafted enough guys that one or two of them would grow into a big role. None of them did. The best result of the experiment was Jeremy Lauzon, who was only in the lineup by season’s end because the B’s didn’t have anybody else.

The Atlanta Falcons agreed to trade star wide receiver Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
But as quarterbacks began practice with target drills and footwork Wednesday morning, Prescott was leading them. When offensive weapons faced off against defensive backs and linebackers shortly after, Prescott was the first of four quarterbacks to fire at them. He found receiver Noah Brown deep in a hurry-up situation and nailed Michael Gallup for both a back-shoulder fade in the corner of the end zone and a toe-dragger down the left sideline.NFL Philadelphia Eagles Team Face Coverings
Mooney finished second on the Bears in receptions and yards as a rookie in 2020, catching 61 passes for 631 yards with four TDs. If his chemistry with Fields continues to take off, Mooney’s production could see a significant jump whenever Fields beats out Andy Dalton to become Chicago’s QB1.
Obviously, Jones' connection with head coach Kyle Shanahan is well-documented, and the 49ers should vault back into Super Bowl contention after an injury-ravaged 2020. That checks one box for Jones, and two if you count the connection with Shanahan, whom he undoubtedly would like to play for again.
The former NFL MVP struggled mightily in the passing game during his debut season in Foxboro, leading to a 7-9 record and the Patriots missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

It was a strange season in Boston. In some ways, it was a transition season, as the team decided not to re-sign Zdeno Chara and Torey Krug, transitioning to a much younger blue line. At the same time, the Bruins are always going to have championship aspirations as long as their top line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak is operating at an elite level.

"You can't reinvent the wheel," Jets captain Blake Wheeler told reporters after Game 3. "You can't start over and try to do something completely different.

Perhaps no team foundered below expectations quite like the Flyers this season. They met the Islanders in Game 7 of the second round last year. Philly lost, but the expectation was for the Flyers to come back even stronger this season, and they were a trendy Stanley Cup pick.

Oskar Lindblom’s story: A finalist last season, the Flyers forward continued his comeback from bone cancer by playing 50 games during the regular season, scoring eight goals and recording 14 points. The good news continued for Lindblom as he was declared cancer-free again after a March scan. “Just to be able to play this game again, play in the NHL, the best league in the world, and I can still manage to be out there and compete, it’s a great feeling,” he said in April. “I’m just happy to be able to be here and play again.Washington Capitals
The second line of Hall with Smith and David Krejci gave the B's much-needed depth, drove puck possession at a high rate and outscored opponents by a wide margin during 5-on-5 action. Bringing that line back next for season -- Krejci also is a free agent -- should be a top priority for Bruins management.

With Carolina’s defeat, the Avalanche are the last first-place team standing. On Tuesday, though, all that mattered was the Lightning are going to face either the Bruins, or Islanders and the Hurricanes are going home again.
The Islanders’ stifling defense limited the Bruins to just five shots on goal in the third. With the minutes winding down on Boston’s season, New York hemmed the Bruins in their end of the ice, preventing them from pulling Rask for an extra skater until 1:25 left.
Similar to Krejci, the B's basically have no choice but to re-sign Hall. They desperately need a winger not named Brad Marchand or David Pastrnak who can score goals.

You'd generally think that most quarterbacks would fare well when they're not blitzed, but the caveat on such plays is that with four or fewer pass-rushers coming after you, you're also going to have to deal with more defenders in coverage. That isn't beneficial for some quarterbacks, and two of them played for the Eagles last season. Against four or fewer pass-rushers in 2020, Carson Wentz completed 188 of 328 passes for 2008 yards, 1,266 air yards, 11 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, and a passer rating of 72.6. When Wentz was cast aside in favor of rookie Jalen Hurts, things didn't get any better. Hurts completed 55 of 110 passes for 778 yards, 450 air yards, two touchdowns, four interceptions, and a passer rating of 64.1. The combination of a static passing offense and quarterbacks who struggle to read more complex coverages is not a recipe for success.NFL Arizona Cardinals Team Face Coverings
