I know this is going to get me razzzed for a while, but Tysen Dowzak has raw physical potential to meet the bill as a stay at home defenseman. He has exceptional conditioning/endurance, hard shot, is very good at physical game in front of crease. Problem is his skating.
Would like to see this guy get more positive buzz, more opportunity to advance. Granted, he'll never be Zubov, let alone Leetch. He might not even skate as well as Brad Park at the end with bad knees.
But he could be good enough to be a stay at home partner to a mobile partner D, and a reserve enforcer..
I can only hope he gets the full chance, applies himself, and succeeds. It would be a waste of an otherwise fully useful hockey player if he couldn't overcome this one deficiency as to speed in skating..
