His defense is basically equivalent to Ales Kotalik right now, but Tortorella seems to have him on a long leash because he shows potential.

I can't blame the offense this season, for the most part at least. Although last night two of the goals we scored should never have went in.

Not to pick on the kid, but he has earned the -23, he is slow to react in the defensive zone and caught out of position nightly...he needs a few games to recharge, enter Corey Potter...he is 19 and will get better but right now he is a defensive liability...
