Those back to back shutouts were not overly impressive, especially the overblown 50-some "save" performance against the Sens. Until the statistitians devide a way to measure quality of shots, though, people would actually have to watch the games, and not memorize stat sheets.

It bought him time with the puck before but more teams seem to be taking that away from him.

And with Carlyle, he better be back checking a lot harder. The least he could do is get back quicker and get his stick in the passing lanes to give the defenders half a chance. He's got all kinds of skill, but half assing it on defense is going to drive any coach crazy.
There's about 10 forwards on the team I'd rather drive the net ahead of Kessel. Phil is pulling his weight offensively, which is more than what could be said about 3/4 of the team.
