And I'm only a big fan because of how he plays. He's reliable defensively, smart with the puck, and plays a sound game. He's not flashy, but he doesn't make mistakes. He's a solid skater and while he's not strong physically, he's strong on the puck.

There's a reason he was a + player (one of only 3 defenseman on our team) on the roster last year. And same with the AHL, how he's one of only a handful of players on the Bulldogs to hold a positive +/- rating despite logging the most minutes.
There is a reason he is 27 and has only played 17 games as an injury replacement on the 28th place team. The +/- reference was silly as he played bottom pairing minutes against the opponents 4th line....not to mention the tiny sample size. Staubitz and Bourque were both +2......did you think they played well?
