I donít understand how you can defend his positioning? Again last night he took a terrible angle on Coleís rush attempt. He made Erik Cole who is pushing 40, look like a speedy Ovechkin coming down the right boards and never came even close to bodying him off the play. Other people noticed the same play from last night. All he had to do was squeeze Cole down the right boards, not a difficult play to make.

I agree he can make good outlet passes but he is sloppy with the puck. I donít recall another Flyers defender having nearly as much difficulty settling the puck, not overskating the puck, making a strong pass with the puck instead of leaving a dead duck for someone to step in an intercept. Itís quite frustrating and it shows a lack of concentration IMO.
