He is also weak on the puck in the corners, he loses lots of those one on one battles. Always looks to have Viz make the breakout pass as he is too passive. He looks overmatched and these small dmen without offense really have no place in this league. We have no depth so he should play out the string but unless he changes his game he should be looked at to play in the AHL or allowed to walk this summer.

It was worth a try with Snow assembling his usual crappy AHL quality defense but now Snow needs to learn how to drop a young player.
Excuse me?
