It does get comical at some times i admit while i respect everyones opinion, I guess with Shelley gone we have to find somewone else who was never counted on to have a role to score or pass, and bash them for not scoring/passing well. It seems OKT plays his ROLE well, and Hitch seems to play him when he is healthy. Now if he was here to be an OFFENSIVE D-MAN, and only had say 7 points in 57 games and the worst plus/minus on the team, id agree you should be questioning his ROLE, but in his 117 career nhl games i think he has been improving and sure made alot less mistakes then someone with 1/2 the games and probobly twice the mistakes but yet gets a free pass all day long who shall remain nameless by me. I never seen OKT get undressed one on one in front of his OWN net and thats what is the most important thing i look at in MY opinion what makes a good d-man, can you play defense first ? Somehow im thinking Hitch thinks the same way
