I think Stralman has looked awful. It hasn't hurt us yet, but he has been positionally dreadful. On 2v2s, he cuts to the puck carrier, even if he's supposed to have the open man, he doesn't battle for pucks, his stick work is pretty bad, and he flat-out loses his defensive assignments way too often.
Maybe he just needs time to adjust to NHL speed again, but nothing I have seen from him gives me confidence thus far. He could have very easily been directly responsible for a good 4 or 5 goals against if we weren't so lucky.
