*shrug* Watched them both - I saw what I saw. He looked more involved, but the quality wasn't there - if he won a board battle, he generally rang it around to the boards to an unmarked opposing defenceman; he was regularly (not every time like his previous call-ups, but enough for me to notice) chasing the puck/too deep in the defensive zone, leading to extended possession for the opposition; he keeps making a slew of small errors, like boxing players in on the wrong side - letting them outlet it rather than forcing them into bad decisions.
Don't get me wrong, he's a physical horse, and a great prospect - just the little things as above add up; it's the reason Miller was still with the club while he was sent down, in my opinion (Miller makes large, glaring errors every now and then, but does all the little things correctly).
