He is in his 4th season. First year he got ROY honors. Second season he seemed to have a poor start aka a sophomore slump. then last year he missed about 1/3 of the season due to injuries.

The fans want him to take that next step up so they are much more critical on him....especially given his new contract that kicked in this year paying him alot more than the entry level contract.

If he was on his entry level contract still there probably wouldnt be as much flack....but because of the price tag he has now the fans expect more so any mistake he may make is now magnified.

The measuring stick used is Chara who played his career with division rivals of Ottawa and Boston. The want Myers to be like Chara given his height similarities.
