What do you expect, people praising him when he's playing like crap? It's called accountability. When you are playing well, people will prasie you. When you play like crap, they will show their frustrations. That's how it works.
No, that's how it works for people without a memory, informed experience and reason.

Nikolai Kulemin has been a solid performer at every level. He experienced tragedy. It happens. Some Leafs fans held back, noted and repeated thoughts stemming from that tragedy as a clear reason why his play dropped off so drastically. Other Leafs fans decided bathwater and baby made zero sense on this defensively challenged squad and wanted him gone.

Memory, informed experience and reason are completely alien to the latter. And to the former, that they employed those three tools and can sit back and offer a smug "I told you so..." is also "how it works."

Glad to see a little light come back into the kid's game.
