He's had a couple rough games to be sure, but he hasn't been the reason we win or lose for the most part. Take into account this team's defense, and the fact that Bryz flat out said he was tired from playing so much, and I don't think this level of criticism is deserved.

Do I believe he could be better, and should be better given his salary? Speaking about only the last couple weeks (since Feb 11 let's say), yes. But you still have to look at the entire season, and at the team around him, and at the amount of games he's played.
totally agree. this team has played poor D all year & simply not even competed in some / parts of many games. the fact that we're almost in a playoff spot is due to Bryz, Simmonds & Jake.
