I agree that rust could be expected due to the time his recovery took, what I don't want to hear is a short story of detailed excuses. Particularly the "wrong side and small ice" excuse. At the WJC hosted here and Calgary (thus small ice surface) he was paired with Brodin most often and played primarily on the right side (from the games I saw at least). He was good enough to be an All-Star among his peers, therefore I don't feel it's a legit excuse (even though he may be more comfortable on the left side on international size rinks). Rust and jitters I can buy though. I just hope we don't see it again.
