He was out of position so much because he was our only scoring threat.
To me, he took another big step forward in February. Scored at a little over .5PPG and also got comfortable in the Sharks system. But yeah, he was a stud for Minnesota for sure.

It was a great hockey trade for both parties. Sharks needed a young top-pairing defenseman, Minnesota needed young forwards. Setoguchi had some off-ice issues with the Sharks and they had 7 top-6 forwards anyway, so it was a win-win for everyone.
