We sometimes see goalies do that after one or two great early seasons, when they get solved, but seeing it mid-career is harder to explain.

Does anyone feel like Parent is getting the shaft here? I was really feeling good about him a couple of rounds ago but as Mike Farkas said, every time I dig deeper I get a little more uneasy with him.
The after is easily explained as he had a major injury.
