He isn't be singled out, as plenty of guys are getting blasted. My point is that he shouldn't get a free pass because he is a fan favorite and has a nice story in making the NHL. Paint it any color you want, he hasn't been good this year. Period.
Really I'm trying to think of a player, other then Cam, who HASN'T been torpedoed over his play this season. I really can't come up with any, even Gleason, Ruutu and Whitney have taken their fair share of shots. Biggest difference is that they've done enough to make up for their deficiencies in other areas, whereas the ones that people are labeling as whipping boys (Brindy, A Ward and LaRose) simply haven't.
