People are hard on Bryzgalov, agreed.

But look at his counterpart, Bobrovsky. When he stinks, people don't ride him nearly as hard. Personally, I think Bobrovsky has endeared himself more to fans with a hard work ethic and tendency to take blame when due - in his limited interviews. If Bryzgalov was seen as a hard-working and down-to-earth individual, who spent less time making excuses and more time improving his game - I think fans would relax a little.

The other issue at stake is performance versus contract size. Tough outings are somewhat easier to swallow when you aren't being paid to be elite. This of course isn't fair to Bryzgalov, as no one would expect him to turn down money - but something out of his control that makes the situation worse.
