I mean “consistent” is definitely a word to describe Hronek’s season-over-season play but also not a good word to describe his game-to-game play.
That’s always going to be the frustrating thing about Hronek. He will have games where he looks like a solid top four guy who just needs his own stay-at-home partner to bolster some good instincts and stickwork and then go through stretches where you’re not certain his brain and his feet occupy the same zip code.
