But he seems to lack that innate ability to take control of big games as you might see Weber or Keith do.
But other than that he's been unbelievable for us. The scouting report on Hamhuis from Nashville was he was supersolid 95% of the time and the other 5% he'd be making Marc-Andre Bergeron-esque gaffs. Not so! We've seen Hamhuis have bad games (and last year he did seem to have have these brief hiccups in his game) but he's really zoned in at the moment, rarely making mistakes.
Thats why Weber is a 7 million dollar dman.
and Bieksa takes him game from complete crap to pretty good depending on his mood and how much Hamhuis can cover up for his ridiculous mistakes that night.
