He also plays a high risk game sometimes in moving the puck, and can occasionally make some ill timed turnovers. But he has improved every year in that area. For a player that handles the puck as much as he does, giveways are always going to be a part of his game. Like any high minute puck moving D man.There is room for improvement there.
You have to take the total package of a player
