He will help our PP, and will marginally improve our 5 on 5. Don't expect him to transform it.
He simply will never regain the speed required to be like old-self and will always remain a question mark health-wise.
The sooner our GM (or next GM) realize this, the better we will be prepared moving forward.
As Kriss said - D has been bad all year - the only difference is that you probably had high expectations, thus reality looks more grim than it really is.
He really doesn't look good out there. I know it's early and folks are saying that he's still finding himself but it seems pretty obvious to me that he's just not the same guy anymore.
