More often than not, I've been content and happy with the way he has played.

I really don't see the point of complaining about his 'weak defense' when he's been on the ice for, what, 3 goals in total since he came here? He might not have a ton of points thus far, but he's been creating offensive chances in each of the games he has played thus far.

I feel like people are nitpicking because they were wrong and are trying to justify what they said prior to him coming here. Myself, I'm happy I was wrong about his game. He's a different player than he was the first two times around, for the better.
So these are the standards now? So long as hes not a complete trainwreck?

And Im curious, what was said prior to him coming here? Because I was led to believe the little guy would be a definitive difference maker even back then and I still really havent seen it.
