The fact that he can "coast" off his pure talent is the frustrating part because despite everything logical the fear of trading him and him getting over whatever the **** causes him to hold him self back on another team keeps me up at night lol.
The difficulty with him seems to be that when he has one of his typical low-scoring games, it doesn't register for him as a problem to be addressed because he doesn't have the self-image of a scorer. Consequently you have this huge variation in his scoring because there is nothing within him trying to keep his scoring at an elevated level. If you don't have the self-image of a scorer, then low-scoring games don't bother you like they would bother a true scorer. He needs to realize that his TEAM needs him to score that way, regardless of how he experiences himself individually.
