I'll be the first to say he was a plug two years ago but I think his game came around last year and if you ask me he was a pretty solid D man.
I'm not saying 'don't improve the D', but I don't recall a better group of D on any other team in the metro center this season. Aside from Olginy (PEI), what else is available that's going to make a big improvement? And who on the Moose D "has to go"?
Baie-Comeau's is pretty good, BLB haven't made an appearance in Halifax yet either... I like Rimouski and Quebec on D too...
But I agree with your point on the Moose D being "under-rated" coming into the season. They averaged 23.2 shots against per-game before KA got injured... since then we've allowed 34 per-game.
I knew we are very dependant on KA, but it will be interesting to see if that trend continues. In fact, the D hasn't really looked out of place.
Some say we need another D, maybe one that takes away more high percentage chances, and I'd have to agree... But not as big a need as improving our 2nd line.
