I don't think the system fits him offensively. He's an offensive defensemen with great skating ability and great stickhandling ability. He doesn't have a cannon from the point and that is where Kings defensemen have to stand most of the time. If him and Doughty were allowed to pinch and use the back door they would be better offensively. I'm not concerned about the physical play, he received too much hype coming out of college. The -75 is a concern. He needs to smarten up his game and I think he is slowly but surely.
