Offensively he has been sub-par this season.
Defensively he has been good.
All totaled up, he's been less than good overall.
I don't agree that people criticizing players on the team they root for is a sign of a simple mind. It is people watching a player who is not living up to expectations, and are showing disappointment from that. Regin was given a great opportunity to play extra minutes in the top 6 when Spezza went down, and he did not produce. How is that anything but disappointing?
To his credit, his strong defensive play has meant that he is not hurting the team, but his inability thus far to provide offence isn't helping the team either.
I think it is far to say that most, if not all fans expect more from him.
We all want the players to play at the highest level possible. I would like for him to score more but he is not hurting the team. I think for him botching up that 2 on 1 in Montreal may have been a moment for him to shake himself out and just play. Just play how you can and try not to be Spezza or whoever. his highlight goals speak for themselves. He has hardly played any hockey in a few years and I am thinking that the coach has a good read on where Regin is and is preaching patience.
By the way, is it not possible for Eric Condra to get better every year?
