I completely agree.

"Accountability" there should be more of it. When you hold a player at such a high level or low level, it doesn't allow for improvements or falters. This city and it's media has done this for years with goalies. The love it or hate it mentality is not reality. A perfect example of this is how Kevin Bieksa changed his game. Trevor Linden could do no wrong and Roberto Luongo can do no right. All or nothing just isn't a sane way to view things.
