Yah they don't. Good think I watched him play.
He didn't handle the physicality of the NHL playoffs very well and was absolutely innefective creating any offence for his team.
He played the most of the defence on his team doesn't mean he played great. I'm not even saying he played bad. I'm just saying he has some stuff to work on his game that got exposed in the playoffs.
His regular season was fantastic. His playofs weren't.
