Halifax has missed him (defensively) since he broke his wrist.
Pretty accurate. He's stepped up his defensive play, in that his pinches are better timed and doesn't get caught as much. I don't think he'll ever be a "physical defenseman", nor did anyone, but he's played with more edge this season. Same ol' Konrad offensively. I think he'll top out and be a bottom pair guy.
Our D realllllly needs him though. He's flown home to Germany and will return on the 27th.
