His coverage is terrible, he is almost perpetually out of position. I can't tell if its that he simply doesn't know what he's doing, or if he just can't skate well enough to efficiently get to where he needs to be, but I don't think I have ever seen any full time defensemen at any level get beat as consistently as Fedor does.
Wow. That's a pretty damning assessment. Scariest part is that our GM and organization has watched the same guy for 3 seasons and rewarded his increbibly incapable defensive zone play with a 6 year contract. Sounds like I should find new team to follow for the foreseeable future...
