Obviously we know he couldn't do that this offseason and it could be showing in his play. He had a nice stretch but now he's just not playing where he can and it's likely we might not see that guy who was even playing well early this season in the playoffs. Let's back off the guy, be happy he's been playing healthy and gaining confidence that he won't get hurt again. Every time he steps onto the ice this season he's getting more and more confident in himself being able to stay healthy.

If he can come back next season and be like his old self, this team can and will be scary good on defense.
