Well a lot of that was because the Tampa team he played for suck. The Habs, for all their problems, have a good track record for getting talented defenders to play defense.

But it was also down to the man himself to reinvent himself as his speed started to go; in Tampa he was pretty much the stereotypical all flashy offense and hits defensemen, if I remember correctly people already assumed he was on the decline by the time he arrived at the Islanders.
