Don't listen to the haters.
I don't think it's hating to say he's not all that great.

This season has been the best he's looked and that best wasn't all that great. He was recently scratched for playing a poor game at Winnipeg. It's not as if he's been flawless himself. The guy just hasn't shown much to suggest he's going to have a really good career in the NHL. Maybe the change of scenery helps him.
