I'm not sure what you're talking about with "fancy" defensive moves early on in the season. He was smart and composed defensively and didn't make a lot of risky plays surprisingly.

I'm sure he's playing for Team Canada because they invited him, not sure what that has to do with him being burnt out.
He was getting caught of position, pinching without really knowing if it was a good idea.

As for the bolded, if the guy was burnt out then how would he be able to keep playing after the NHL season?

Just to clarify, I'm not dissappointed with the kid it's what I expected. But it's something we have to take with us going forward.
