I actually like Hejda's game. He does a lot of the dirty work that's not glitzy or glamorous. Most fans don't notice it and are down on him, but at crucial defensive situations last year it was guys like Hejda that were on the ice.

He's a defensive player on a team that in general is mediocre defensively, so he's going to get some blame from most fans I guess. Maybe if they can improve to a top 10 D he will gain some more recognition. Outside of a few guys (Lando, O'Reilly, etc) we have some big duds on defense as far as forwards go, so maybe some improvement there will help Hejda's game.

I think he's a pretty valuable guy that we cannot trade at all. I think you'll see him actually improve this year. He usually plays with Stastny, and Stastny's defense hasn't been it's usual self in the past year or two...but with impending FA and contract negotiations coming up you should see him step it up a notch...that will benefit guys like Hejda or EJ.
