Positionally mediocre, always chasing and reacting to the play instead of being in control. And doesn't contribute offensively because he's such a poor passer of the puck.
Basically he can skate pretty well and occasionally have a rush that looks nice. Other than that, he's a mediocre #6 defender. $800k player making $4.2 million.
Were you one of the people claiming Bieksa would be addition by subtraction a few years ago?
