He was always willing to hit but usually got out of position to do it, frequently made bad plays with the puck, and really sucked at fighting although he threw down every once and a while.

For a brief period of time where he was paired with Chara it looked like he "got it" but in retrospect it was probably just Chara covering for his weaknesses.
He was pretty terrible for the first few games actually (See: Game Puck Thread), but for a few weeks now he's been very solid. I'm actually really starting to like him as a player. Definitely wouldn't place him on the top two pairings, but very good 5-6 defenseman IMO.
