I'm not referring to making the occasional backcheck. I'm referring to his just softly giving the puck away constantly, to not blocking passing lanes and trapping. Parts of his defensive game are sadly lacking. That is exactly why he isn't playing in the top six on a full time basis.

Good defensive hockey includes actually maintaining possession when you have the puck; that is an abstract concept for some to grasp. Limiting your own giveaways is defense.
