I think it may be residual from the Marc Crawford days. If you'll remember, Crawford's idea of teaching defense to young players was to scream profanities at them in practice.
In those days, Kopi routinely lost his man in the d-zone. After giving up a goal, I would turn to my wife regularly and say, "Kopi lost his man."
This is no longer true. Not in the least. In fact, he's extremely good at reading and breaking up plays defensively, keeping the puck along the boards, and getting it out of the zone. But I've a feeling most of the rest of the league - outside of the locker rooms - haven't realized that yet.
