Melindy has disappointed me a bit this year. I really thought he'd be a rock on the top 4 this year but he's been wildly inconsistent. I think he may be trying to do too much. I like his grit, willingness to stand up for teammates, etc. but he takes some really awful penalties. Hopefully we'll see him tighten up the screws down the stretch here because he's got all the right tools.
I will agree on Melindy. Just so inconsistent. Not even from game to game (yes that, too) but shift to shift. Not q good sign. Still, a decent long-term project. No doubt about that.
