That's an interesting point. His game, both in international play and the NHL, definitely and markedly deteriorated after the Olympics. He seems to have lost so much confidence, and he can't seem to control the puck on his stick anymore. Maybe because he had so much pressure on him to kind of personally win a Gold Medal, and the whole team effort went so badly!
