I understand why a lot of fans are blaming it on his tendency to start slow, but it's more than that, imo. It's been 30 games, over half of this season and nearing half of a regular 82 game season. It's not just a slow start anymore. I can't imagine that he's not playing injured. I don't think he's been bad defensively (although I thought he had a really bad defensive game against Vancouver) but he hasn't been stellar, either. I know he's probably the last player to want to sit out when he feels he can play, but if he is injured, I'd rather him sit out 1-2 games IF it would help him get healthier. Maybe it's an issue that isn't pressing that needs to be addressed in the offseason.
