This season he's been much more willing to rub the guy out to get the puck. Sure thats a far cry from using his big frame to deck guys, but at least he's starting to use his frame to get in the way and rub the guys out. I really like what I've seen from Ceci regarding physical play. Some people have to realize he will be more of a Kuba then Weber when it comes to throwing his weight around.
Oh absolutely, he's never going to rock guys, but he can't just let guys skate past him without any physical contact. Still lots of time to learn though. His defensive awareness is somehting he will improve on as he gets older too, just thought it would be slightly better then it was last year.
