Tedenby is very very bad defensively, but what exaggerates it is that he can't protect the puck. If he were built a little more stoutly like say Brian Gionta, he could do something in the league. He's a tremendous skater with excellent lateral movement, but he's useless cycling the puck and he doesn't have the strength to win board battles in the defensive zone. As people have already mention, the issue is not that he's scared, but he just can't win these battles. He probably ends up back in Europe at the end of this year. I hope one day he puts it all together, but like people said before, it's probably not with the Devils.
