To be fair, I'm much less a Hejda fan as I was a Hannan fan. Hejda just doesn't have that same knack for always being in position that Hannan had. Hejda is however more physical and has thrown a few nice hipchecks which give me hope for his future with the team.

I hope down the line we can use him in the capacity he should be used in, to clean up Elliott or Barrie's mess while they adapt in the NHL. When that happens I think he will look a lot better as he won't be playing a role that is outside of his skillset, as a top pairing defender role is for him which Sacco seemed to entrust him with for stretches of time.
