There's been a lot of hate around these boards toward Mike since he signed with the leafs, so obviously his stock has fallen around these parts. Truth be told, he's a damn fine defenseman. Really responsible defensively, doesn't back down from physical play, and a shot blocking machine.
That said, don't expect any offense from him. Much more of a shutdown guy. His slapper is strong, but it seems like it takes him far too long to release it, so he doesn't really fool anyone with it. His outlet passes aren't the crispest/most accurate either.
Despite that he's a big man, he's not the greatest of fighters, either.
He had a poor year this past season, but I personally believe he was playing injured for the majority of the season.
He should be a serviceable guy for the leafs, but probably not worth the 4.5 million he's being paid. But in reality, how many UFAs aren't overpaid?
