There is a reason he is a Vezina winner and 4x Vezina finalist.
I live in the realm where every game I watch him give up huge rebounds. Look, I truly think it's his only real fault. He's improved his glove hand, which was his other fault, exponentially since being a rookie. The rebound control has been my only complaint with him over the past 2 years or so. It's always been a problem with him. Even when he could grab the puck with his glove, he chooses to head it out.

Every single goaltender has a weak area. His is rebound control.
