Seemed to me like most of his issues were just mental; getting rattled, playing nervous and over-committing etc. The fact that he has to change the way he plays kind of worries me.
There were some mental issues, but I don't think that was really as big as we make it out to be. His play had some flaws that became more apparent in the playoffs (not only against the Hawks, but especially against them). He's learning new tricks that use his strong fundamentals to be harder to play against.
