Not sure how you come to this conclusion.
He's not perfect, he's still very green with only 58 reg season games played, but he has improved by leaps and bounds since his first call up two years ago. He is doing a commendable job playing 20+ minutes.
I really don't see this consistent over match in his own end. He does lose some battle, but I don't think he's been losing them more than any of our other Dmen.
