It's seems obvious that you're not looking at it objectively and that you're ignoring the prior 300+ games of his career that got him the big contract.

Unfortunately, the bad luck, the poor play and the shaky defense has combined to shake his confidence, which has hurt his game. His fundamentals are off. He's not out challenging shooters, and he's been caught cheating, expecting to have to be ready for a quick pass to an uncovered opponent standing all alone at the side of the net.

The level of play has been poor. Anybody that disputes that is a fool or completely biased themselves. But to ignore the other factors is just as bad and just as short sighted
Well-stated.
