The biggest problem I've had with his play is that he too often takes himself out of the play to make the big hit. He could improve his agility on his skates too, hopefully that will come soon. I think the reports so far this year have been encouraging, but the only reason he's even in the AHL at this point is because Kondratiev and Tyutin left and Genier is hurt...it sounds as if he has perhaps moved ahead of Liffiton in the depth chart, but we'll see how he looks tonight.

Oh, and I've probably seen him play 20 or so times last year with Minnesota
