Its perfectly fair.

His struggles were beyond maddening the first few months but it had been pointed out repeatedly that he was a good bottom six/depth player for both Boston and Tampa. The usual response was "if he is such a good player, why is he on his 1000th team in the last few years???". It was pretty obvious that a lot of people did not watch him and had no idea what he was capable of.

To me that shows ignorance.
