I knew that Pitkanen was going to be an offensively gifted player - that reputation preceded him - but I had no idea that he was so good defensively. Now, I'm not saying that he's a shutdown defenseman, but on opposing rushes he will often make a great poke-check to diffuse the situation. His ability to wait out the rusher and make the smart play is fun to watch.
