It doesn't seem Deboer really trusts him to give him top minutes even strength.
True. Anton is a beast at shot blocking and that's always a plus on the PK but the risk of injuries are also higher so it's also a risk but what can you do... we can't have it both ways.

I like Anton as a 3rd pairing d-men and a #1 PK'er. I just want to vomit when I see his contract, the lenght and the NTC... that's all.
