Again, I only saw the highlights, so maybe I'm wrong, but I was wondering what everyone else's thoughts on this are. I still think we need to give him time before making any definitive judgements, but I think this is one of the things he does need to improve on.
He def could be blamed on the third goal and Lavi said as much. Moreover his Leightonesque save percentage is insulting right now and the fact that Mike Smith is showing him up in Phoenix adds to the insult.
Obviously, he is playing avg to below avg thus far. He hasn't really stolen many games if any. He needs to be way better and yes he gets lazy and doesn't bear down on second and third chances. He is def too talented to play mediocre like he has. It just seems mental. Anyway, I suppose he has 8 more years to prove himself....
