As far as others making excuses for him, that's on them. I think that he's had the worst case of luck I have seen a goalie have and it's really affected his game. It has him guessing rather than using fundamentally strong approaches. A questionable goal immediately has him feeling off his game.

That run of bad luck, combined with the shaky defense and lack of familiarity has really snowballed on the guy. He didn't suddenly forget how to play at a high level, but he needs work on his mental approach and fundamentals
Bad luck? He doesn't cover the post and gets scored on repeatedly, doesn't put the paddle down, same thing, plays too deep in his net, can't save a deflection because his reaction time is too slow. No luck there, just bad fundamentals. You sound like the broadcast crew who constantly makes excuses for him.
