Umby sucks? Really?

All season, all anyone has said about R.J. Umberger is that he sucks and he's a disappointment. Even the bloggers, here, unanimously placed Umby in the "biggest disappointment" category for their quarter year awards. I have a question. Has anybody actually looked at the Jackets' player statistics? You'll be shocked, I'm sure. After last night's game against Toronto, Ryan Johansen leads the team in goals with six and is second only to Wiz in total points with 16. R.J. Umberger is tied with Artem Anisimov and Cam Atkinson for second in goals scored with six and is fourth on the team in total points with 13. Right now, I need somebody to explain to me how this rates as sucking and being a disappointment, because I really don't see it. What I see is a case of a star player having an off season, earning a reputation for under-performing and supposedly informed writers (Such as the gentlemen writing this blog.) ignoring his actual performance to continue "reporting" on his reputation. Tell me, does Cam Atkinson suck? Is he under-performing? I mean, he has 3 fewer assists than Umby and if Umby sucks and is under-performing, then......
