Nobody is really intimidated at the thought of going down his side because you can skate around him at this point. Stuart still has enough mobility and aggression to take someone out on occasion.
I think T.J. Oshie would say Douglas still goes for the big hit haha. What I noticed out of him last year was that he didn't step up in the neutral zone like he has done in previous years. The Sharks passive d-style is hopefully dead and buried.
