This season has been the best he's looked and that best wasn't all that great. He was recently scratched for playing a poor game at Winnipeg. It's not as if he's been flawless himself. The guy just hasn't shown much to suggest he's going to have a really good career in the NHL. Maybe the change of scenery helps him.
Yeah but there's a difference between saying he's not all that great, and he's horrible and should be our 8th d-man, like some Panthers fans will tell you. I'll never understand how he gets so badly crucified sometimes. People make a mountain out of a molehill with every play he makes.

I disagree that he had a bad game in Winnipeg. I know you will counter with well why was he scratched. But he didn't do anything wrong on the 1st goal. He tried to deflect a shot away from his goalie, like d-men do many times a game. Some take weird bounces and go in. It happens. What else did he do that was so bad in that game? Maybe Dineen was just rotating d-men like he has done regularly over the past couple seasons because we always had a lot of d-men?
