When you have Willie Mitchell as a defensive partner, expectations are naturally higher.

And I stated that he doesn't need a partner like Hamhuis or Mitchell anymore - this past season (and the post-season before that) has defined his career [at this point] to me. My post was in response to you using Bieksa's freak injuries as a crutch for his poor play during those several seasons - when he played actually worse when completely healthy during that season in question.
