Why isn't there more love for Pommer in the GBU?

I'm still surprised how underappreciated Pommer is. When he does something of note its either barely commented on or its reduced to being part of something else (like his goal yesterday). But when he messes up, the torches and pitchforks come out very quickly.

Pommer's stat line yesterday

-1g 1a 2pts +2
-20:05 min played
-50% on draws (4 of 8)
-4 blocked shots
-played in all situations
-wasn't on the ice for a Flyers goal against

Not to mention his goal was scored because he did what his detractors claim he never does (and they are wrong). He cut to the inside of the defender and went straight to the net. Scoring off a good pass from Vanek.
I was gonna mention something about Pommerz on the draw. I only saw him take three faceoffs, but he won all of them pretty cleanly.

The thing about Pommerz, though, is that he doesn't do a lot to stick out. Sure, he scored a goal, but the bigger part of that play was Vanek's pass, even though Jason made a nice play by going to the net.
