Yeah, it looks McD is turning into what Timmins originally saw in him, at least close to it. Well, not that close because Timmins was comparing him to Scott Niedermayer, but still, a legit #2-3 two-way D who can play physical.

I have no issue whatsoever revisiting my previous comments, as I'm quite explicitly stating in that quote from a while back.

The thing is: I don't know if anyone can find a link, but I somehow remember McD wasn't really interested in signing an ELC with Montreal prior to the trade. I've always wondered why he had that attitude towards the team that loved him that much and was willing to move up in the draft to get him.
