Regarding his play - he's developed his offence more than I thought he would; becoming a leader on the blue-line. His defensive game leaves a bit to be desired, though. Not much of a hockey IQ and fans are regularly on him for missing something or not clearing the front of the net.

His potential is still there, but people keep mentioning his hockey IQ, or lack thereof. He's young, so lots of time; not overly concerned about it.
Part of the reason is that they have him playing to many mins in the game. he is on the PP, the PK and was #1-2 majority of the year. if he was playing a #3-4 with time on the PP then he would be way better. look at his rookie year, he was fantastic manly because he was #3-4 while playing with Ellis on the PP then he was given way to many min as well he came to camp out of shape in his second year and it took him half the season to get into shape
