He'll let players beat him to the outside but his stick knocks the puck away 90% of the time. The two defensive area I think he needs improving on are tying the guy in front of the net up (he is not very good right now in these situations) and making smart decisions with the puck to get it out of the zone (decent).
I think he makes solid choices with the puck but he doesnt handle it well so even when those decisions are correct the play some times breaks down from a lack of puck handling skills.I will stick by my view that unless he vastly improves his overall skating his ceiling is a very good SAH D man (Not that there is anything wrong with that) Its what Victor Headman has become and what Tyler Myers hopes he still can be
