Hes a #1-2 offensively, and a #3-4 defensively. He's really the only bona fide offensive defenseman we have and there is increased reliance on him in that role. So not only is he more focused on moving the puck, but his supporting cast is mediocre from a defensive perspective. All in all, it makes for solid offensive production, and shoddy defense play.

I don't know why people are surprised that he looks suspect defensively when neither Lidstrom and Stuart are around. Its a huge depreciation in per se defensive play.
