He also needs to prove to rack up the point totals without Crosby in the lineup and he had the perfect opportunity to prove he's one of the league's elite defenseman. He was far from impressive against the Lightning in the playoffs too. Don't get me wrong he's a nice puckmover, but he isn't quite a #1 defenseman yet, same goes to Erik Johnson.

Agreed with Bieksa claim, his play dropped off after Hamhuis went down.

Also Nino, he wasn't impressive in his 9 game stint, but who knows maybe he did really well in juniors.

2k2...anyway you could prevent me from posting in this thread before I do something I regret.
