But on goals that were scored against us, he was the one who actually had his man covered, whereas Gus/Lauridsen/can't-remember-them-all didn't and that led to a guy being left alone. So he's far from perfect, but his passes are also better than Gus's, Lauridsen's or Huskins's. Gus clearly has more creativity on the offense, but he's no dynamo yet. So I don't know. Huskins has shown he's a competent #6/#7 defensman, but I'm just saying we've got enough of those lying around.
He also hit the post with a pretty good shot. I think he can stick around as a 6th or 7th defenseman.
