Personally, I thought it was fatigue, and I know people will say that he only played a bit more than half the games... but from february on, including the olympics, how much rest did he get, and when was the last time he took on that kind of load? Certainly not in the NHL. Not to mention the amount of work he had to put in for 60 minutes.
I know he had begun to take some heat, and deservedly so, but if we lost on the last day to the Leafs and missed the playoffs, the Huet comparisons would have come up.
