I definitely felt he looked unsure of himself at times, but that was mostly in the offensive zone when he was stapled to the blue line. I got the impression his natural instincts wanted were to do one thing, but that Boudreau wanted something else. I say Boudreau, because Carlyle and Gordon didn't seem to want the same thing from him, and he didn't show the same kind of hesitation. But repeatedly beaten in 1-on-1 situations? Not really. Usually the times I saw him beat was when he was outnumbered along the boards. His biggest problem along the boards is he isn't quite strong enough yet. I was pretty happy with his play in 1-on-1 situations, except when he didn't close the gap quickly enough. The biggest mistakes I saw from him in the D zone were some of the turnovers, or earlier in the season when he wasn't as quick to get his stick on an opposing player in front of the net.
