He gets the credit that he deserves. The credit that you get for having one decent play-off performance in seven years and only managing to keep fit for one. There's only so long you can keep relying on the injury excuse before it stops washing.
I give him credit for his 40 goal season but I will also never forget the open goal he missed and the stupid penalty he took. He's an excellent regular season player but he's a million, billion miles away from being anything like a play-off performer.
