He seems to be the "example player" when he makes mistakes and rides the pine then.

I guess the question is in other peoples eyes has his game regressed or was our D that much better last year that he was protected more?
He has definitely regressed. But the question I ask is who has really improved under this coaching staff?

It seems to be scale that runs from stagnation to severe regression. And Iafrate just tips the one end of that scale. However, with him, my theory is that he's more of an aggressive, physical, up-tempo guy and that is not at all the style Spott likes. So the staff have completely neutered his game to the point where he mostly just looks confused and lost out there.
