There's definitely an element of systems learning that he's still going through. He has looked lost out there from time to time. I think it's pretty evident that he's worried about being out of place defensively - so much so that it's impacting his offense. It's not at all different than what Kopitar went through as he was learning to become a better two way player.
Poor conditioning just exacerbates the problem.
I'm hopeful that the strength and conditioning coach will get him on a successful training regimen this off-season and he'll look much better next season.
