Don't attempt to cherry pick examples to downgrade a damn good player. He's very deserving of his nomination.
Hitch just said that his forwards didn't come back hard enough. Guess he saw the play different than you.
I'm sure backes deserved his "nomination", but he was lazy on that play and it cost them game one. He didn't pick up anyone.
I would be upset if Kopitar played it the same way, doesn't mean Kopitar is a bad defensive player.
