In many ways the PK on D is almost simpler and Brady's speed may be seen as a very valuable asset there whereas during the entire rest of the game his mental mistakes may be more crippling.
Good points. Except, whats wrong with the coach saying he's the key to our defense?

I see his mistakes away from the PK. On the rush, he overcompensates towards his partners side. Again, he's a great skater, maybe used to covering so much where he came from or thinks his speed will close the gap, cause he does this frequently leaving opposing players open with too much room on his side, it's noticeable. With experience comes maturity and then we hope to see him not force the play.

Minny's PK has been good. Skjei does his job, having a more experienced partner definitely helps. He's all about the skating, everything else needs work. That's no slight, he's a freshman. Minny is trying to develop their players over time, that way they stay for more than 2 years, which has been a problem for them.
