I feel like Hamonic is just getting back since being smashed in the face with that puck. I thought the concussion this year was a bit devastating and was hoping it would be a speedy recovery. So far, he has been solid this year.

I also think that it is natural for the defensive skills to lag behind offensive skills as a player moves up a level. Once he got confident in his defensive abilities at the lower level, the offensive abilities started to come through a bit. I think we are about a year or two away from seeing that at the NHL level.
