Drouin was injured for most of the year, Byron too.....this is not a % based list. Armia and Suzuki were probably his most used linemates thoughout the year but that was not even for a majority portion of the year as it changed so many times it was no wonder he had an off season.. Suzuki only started playing bigger minutes towards the second half of the year only. Armia was probably Domi's most used linemate.
Now lets all be reminded of the fact that the Habs top line of Tatar/Danault/Gallagher stayed intact for most of the year with Danault having only 3 points more than Domi.........
If you add up all the non top 6 players playing time who played alongside Domi this year, they'd be close to if not equal to the top 6 players playing time. Drouin, Suzuki, Kovalchuk. The others were Armia, Lehkonen, Cousins, Weal and maybe a few shifts with Kotkaniemi. Why is this falling on Domi's shoulders? The two players Domi played with during his 72 point season BOTH had career years and were healthy for most of the season and the line stayed intact for MOST of that year.
44 points playing with 8 different players on his wing/as his center, half of which are not top 6 players, is astounding IMO. Domi's only valid criticism this year was his temper for taking bad penalties and his slightly lacklustre defensive play. Don't know how anyone can criticize his offensive game. He produced no worse than any other Habs forward.
