He's had problems since then, because he has concussion issues. But he's a great skating defenseman who makes very good puck decisions and has a great shot.

He's only in the AHL because he's there for conditioning issues and recovery issues. He's only struggled in the NHL this year because of his concussion issues.

The more you post the less intelligent and informed you seem about the NHL, the AHL and especially the Leafs.

What are you talking about? I said he was a sure thing and said my only issue has been post concussion.

And you keep referring to me as high strung.

Some of you are really making use of this whole anonymity thing, I can't imagine you'd be this irrationally aggressive and mindless in person.

The fact that he is not in the NHL has more to do with conditioning and timing rather than skill or a lack of abilities. He's still the same player that he was last year, if not better.

which is actually addressed in the part of my post you chose to ignore?
