The coach must be really is worried about him when he is willing to put him out in the last minute of the game defending a lead.

I think some people seem to forget this kid has been in the league for under 1 year.
This is mainly because he and MacKinnon can retain puck control for the majority of the kill often times.

He is by no means a great defensive player imo. I wouldn't call him a spectator but it is a big weakness in his game relative to the rest.
