He was gold in the playoffs, and he will be fine when two of the top 4 return in Markov and Hamrlik. Our D will be solid when it is Markov, Subban, Hamrlik, Spacek, Gill, Gorges and O'Byrne/Henry/Picard as the 7th Dman.
I don't get that either. Well, I do. He hasn't looked that great in this seasons ahem training-camp, add that to his cap hit (that a lot of people seem to be sad about but is actually pretty reasonable for what he brings) and it seems that everybody has run wild with that. It's like last season didn't happen.

He was very solid last year playing on the right side of a brand new team with a brand new coach eating huge minutes for the first half of the season and played solid in the playoffs after coming back from a virus that kept him out for a while too. I still don't get how he's become a whipping boy so fast.
