Every point he's scored was from good play. And with 3-in-4, he's played better than most of this board is letting on. Not to mention a great second period last game.

He's not playing well, but to see some of the overreactions about how he's a "bust" and whatnot is ridiculous.
This exactly. I won't argue he has to play better. He does. In order for this team to do well he has to play better. But he hasn't been terrible. If he was terrible he would have no points.
