Probably a bit of both. He doesn't look comfortable physically on the ice at times, and others he's just flat out of position, not playing the body and turning some really soft pucks over. I know previously he could often skate his way out of trouble, this year he has clearly lost a step (could be conditioning, not just the injury), he's making mental mistakes and hasn't adjusted his game as necessary. The fact that he still thinks he can play that way leads me to believe he might just be out of shape, and not just feeling the effects of the injury.
