I think he is playing soundly, but not spectacularly, makes one or two nice reads offiensively each game and defensively is just fine.
If you want to argue my point then come with facts....
how many shots on net did he have?
How many scoring chances last game?
I think he has 1 scoring chance, 2 shots on net, 0 hits in two games....sounds offensive to me.
I will wait two more games but if those stats donīt change.....
