I don't understand why this is a thing?
Nobody has a problem when people point out Ericsson's terrible play.
Nobody has a problem when people point out Kindl's terrible play.
Nobody has a problem when people point out Helm's terrible hands.
They've had good games and bad games, but nobody has a problem when people suggest these players be used differently or even off the team entirely.
When these things do happen, nobody goes around bemoaning the "Ericsson Hate Brigade" or the "Kindl Hate Brigade" or the "Helm Hate Brigade".
But my god, Howard has a bad game or does something stupid and your first reaction "Oh MY gOD I MuST DEFeNd HIm FroM teh HatE SquADS!!!!11"
Hate is when posters were saying they'd rather lose with Mrazek than win with Jimmy. Hate is when people were dissing Jimmy when he had the better stats. I'm sure the previous poster was referring to those people, who attacked him without any ammo. Now they have ammo and you know they're going to run with it.
I don't think anyone said you can't criticize Jimbo. He deserves some criticism, but it is one game while he's been solid otherwise (except shootouts, of course).
