How has he looked in comparison to his fellow defenders such as Thrower and Dietz this season, curiously?
We haven't had a lot of good news, but not too much in the way of bad news either from Duncan. Getting the impression he's hit a stalemate in his development and may need to jump up to the next level to start progressing again.
Thrower has hardly played, between injury and discipline from the team, he's hardly seen any time. He's been very average in the games he has appeared in. Set to return soon from an upper body injury.
Dietz was the team's MVP through the first 15 or so games of the year. Was the best defenceman, was scoring and playing top minutes along with Siemens. Since that time Siemens has really got his feet under him and has been our best defenceman, in my opinion. Really moving his feet and jumping into the rush more lately, which was a big strong point for him in his draft year. He creates big lanes when driving the ice offensively and it's nice to see him doing that a bit more.
