I think his instincts without the puck are ok. I don't have a problem with his defense, he makes mistakes, but I find he's committed to it.
Last night was a few plays that were glaring, but usually he handles the puck well and gets his shots off.
The only criticism I really have is that he has to work on his puck reception. He has too many passes bounce off his stick. I thought Tanguay had a problem here as well, but I think it should get chalked up to playing the offside and getting used to it, as he was much better last night.
Maybe he shouldn't be making cute moves in open ice, needs to make faster decisions, but I don't know if those 2-3 plays were really indicative of him.
