    RNH was the first one that came to mind. Conacher maybe.

    Selänne peaked in Anaheim going into the dead-puck era, 1992/93 was just a high-scoring season in general.

    I can't think of any player that refused to ever take wrist shots.

    Petr Prucha was the first name that popped in my mind. Trent Hunter too.

    After Andrej Meszaros' rookie season I thought he was gonna be really really good but that might have been his best NHL season. Never lived up to expectations after that imo

    Steve Mason got serious Vezina + Hart consideration as a rookie and while he was still a starter for a while longer, he never came close to that again.

    I just went back and looked at that draft.

    That draft was rough.

    Closest comparison I can think of to Simmons is Jeff Skinner. Won Rookie of the Year, but had a major weakness to his game but he just didn't care to develop. For Simmons, its his jumper, for Skinner its forechecking and backchecking.

    Skinner got traded for peanuts and the team that traded him got better for it. Would not be surprised if something similar happens with Philly and Simmons.

    Skinner definitely puts effort into forechecking but backchecking forget about it

    Elias Pettersson was god like before he was injured in his first season in Montreal. Is not even close to the same player he was.

    First name that I thought of. Sometimes I wonder, if you dropped him back in the Q right now, would his numbers be lower than when he was 18? He was a much faster, dynamic player back then.

    I'd say Eric Staal would be my pick, had it not been for his Minny stint. He was a 100 pts player in his 2nd year, 28 pts in 25 playoff games. Went ppg 2 years later and then his numbers just slowwwwly crept down until a weird 2-years resurgence in Minny and back to nothing right after.

    Another one is Alex Galchenyuk. Granted his numbers increased for a while before peaking, but he peaked at 21 with very respectable/good numbers and now at 27 he's on his way out of the league...

    Oh man. Joe Juneau. His "I played on a line that didn't try to play defense with Adam Oates at his peak" season was fun to watch!

    No one as there's no NHL version of Kendal Jenner

    You can form a dynasty based on her history of ex's

    Mason, Raycroft, Carrey, Hammond, Toskala, arguably Murray.

    His point totals substantially regressed after he was injured in Montreal. He is not the same player.

    I don't watch the NBA, so I have no idea who or what you are talking about.

    Sadly DeBrusk may be trending towards this.
    See how next year goes

    Mitch Marner certainly hasn't regressed in a way that Simmons has, but both of them are spitting images of each other. Supremely talented, amazing playmaking vision, capable of scoring decently, very good defensively. But in the playoffs, their fatal flaw (an inability to shoot to ball/puck) gets completely exploited and serves to undermine their entire offensive game and become a huge liability to the team around them. On top of that, they cave mentally at the slightest hint of adversity.
