Also Walter is on a 2-way Contract.
He is down there to make those mistakes and take those risks. These are opportunities that he would not be afforded on the big club and because of this there will be a few growing pains from time to time.
I watched both games of the series and to me he made far more positive plays then he did negative. I was actually impressed with what I saw myself.
His puck distribution and poise under pressure situations were a notch above every other defender in the series, that much is clear.
