It is bound to happen with young defensemen, doesn't take away from them being highly talented and it doesn't mean they can't fix those mental errors.
Doughty obviously has bad games as well. Lidstrom... well not Lidstrom... Pronger has bad games, too

Too many bi polar personalities around here who are ready to fall on the sword for Jack at one point and then a month later are ready to crucify him. Same goes for Quick, Brown, etc.
Eh, I think Jack is a great offensive talent, I'm just not ready to completely ignore his defensive faults because he scores points. And I don't see how either of your quotes imply they don't go after Drew more (which is what I said, I didn't say they ignore JJ).
I know you get very defensive of JJ but, you're naive if you think his consistently horrible +/- is just because of bad luck.
As for bi-polarism, I don't know that anybody has been ready to fall on a sword for Brown in a very long time. And as far as JJ is concerned, people keep getting their hopes up whenever he strings together a few defensively sound games, thinking he's finally figured it out, hardly bi-polarism.
People are only bi-polar about Quick because we also have Bernier.
Anyways, I've made it my off season mission to figure out what is wrong with Jack! Wish me luck
