I was critical of him in the early part of the year. The first 4 games or so. I thought he was underperforming for someone making 4M a season. I think he has been improving, getting more comfortable with his teammates and becoming more comfortable in Laviolettes system. I saw some hesitation out of him in the early going. Not so much now. He is skating hard, taking the body, and making quick decisions with the puck. I think there is still room for improvement in his game offensively and I hope that he will find it, he has a good point shot but still hasn't found goals. I think that will change for him. I am pleased with what I see and I think he will get better as the season goes forward.



Great post. You've seen pretty much the exact same Mez that I've been watching.
