He goes and posts a -4 rating that night. I may be underestimating how long it takes a defender to adjust to a new team, but last night was inexcusable.
You are. He needs to play better for sure, but this is a totally different system. Despres has had his struggles as well. All of these dmen take time to adjust to the pro game. The best looking rookie dman has been Dumoulin and he played under virtually the same system in college. Let's be patient with Joe.
