I just don't see him as a "shutdown" defensive player and he has never shown the ability to dominate on PK. You put him in there for lack of better options.
I wonder why that is - he skates well, handles the puck well, etc. Based on his play when he has better linemates, he's a competent player - 3rd to 4th line tweener, I would say. You'd think that he'd have the tools to be decent on the PK.
