Two seasons ago he was bad.
Towards the end of last season + playoffs he was one of our better d-men.
This season he has been good for us, one of our more consistent d-men. This is the first time I haven't completely hated his cap hit.

His style of play isn't utilized well in Vancouver.
He likes to carry the puck into the offensive zone, but our coaching staff wants our d-men to pass the puck up to the forwards.
