I think he's still got room to improve as he gets more comfortable with the new team, system, city, etc. Give the guy a chance. He's definitely got potential, so its worth a look. Certainly better than Woywitka, IMO.
I never complained about his offense, it's his defense that worries me. He has been bad positionally in the defensive zone, especially on opposing rushes. I'm willing to write off his first few games as rust, but he needs the eliminate the lapses quickly, or else it's going to start costing us. We have been insanely lucky thus far that we haven't been hurt by his blunders.

And he is definitely not better than Woywitka, at least not defensively.
