The issue isn't whether or not he side-steps hits, it's what he does when he avoids a hit. Last night, I only saw one instance where it didn't work for him, and more often than not, not only did it work, it worked well.

Only one game, so I won't read too much into it, but he didn't come out of that with a ton of red flags, and that's a great thing to say of the first NHL game for a defenseman who is labeled as a puck-mover.
