There's something more to it, something that can be covered by a good pairing defenseman, as he was able to show when he played better in stretches with Tanev. I think that's what Dumba will ultimately need... a stalwart defensive presence beside him to clean up his mistakes and let him play his game. He'll need to make that game pretty good to make him worth it, though.
Interesting. We have recently acquired somebody that seems to fit that description...
