He has yet to be directly responcible for a goal against. A lot of people are trying thier damnest to blame him for some of the goals against and it is just rediculas.

He is our # 6 guy. We couldn't afford a great #6 guy with the salary cap and how much our kids will cost.

He is playing at least as well as Whitney and IMO considerably better than Whitney overall. For 1/4 the cost.

Is a natural RD which is nice.

Was 100% better than Peckam last year.

Decent puck mover. Good on the PP. Good shot. Big. Fiesty. I think decent positioning. Good skater... Not a lot to complain about for a #6 guy.
As was pointed out in the OP. On for 4 of the 6 ES goals against in the games he has played absolutely is something to complain about for a #6 defenseman. And his good shot/good on the PP is irrelavant in that he gets zero PP time.
