I agree I have seen him get lazy on the back check, but I can't say I remember many games this season where he wasn't finishing his checks, or getting pushed around. Some games he wasn't hitting as much as usual, but when he did hit, he HIT.

On the other hand, 2nd half of playoffs he wasn't finishing checks and seemed to be getting muscled around and not fighting back. I was really disappointed by that.
