He put himself in that position (deserves blame), but he did fine once he was in that position (deserves credit). I'm not willing to judge the trade on the basis of what Bobrovsky has become. Nobody expected that, and it's disingenuous to use hindsight to evaluate that deal.
I'm sure a lot of people didn't think he'd win a Vezina and nobody thought he'd win it so early, but pretty much everyone recognized how incredibly athletic and talented he was.
