How is Adam's defensive play? I know Vanek gets criticized for that some times
Not lately. He's so vastly improved from the time he broke into the league it's not even funny. He's getting regular PK time as well. He's beasting in all three zones. Lindy Ruff said back then that his goal was to make Vanek the most complete 2-way player in the league...and right now Vanek must be making him proud.

Adam has a way to go as most rookies do. He got caught on lazy backchecks earlier in the season, but the good news is he's trying not to repeat those mistakes. But given that Pommer is one of the best defensive forwards on the team, that certainly helps cover for any defensive lapses by Adam.
