I understand on the PK they want to rotate and take away passing lanes, but good god clearing the crease used to be fundamentals for a Dman.

His play overall has been good, not as good as last year, but this specific aspect of his game has got me scratching my head.
He did absolutely NOTHING wrong on that play. His defensive partner, Dan Girardi went strolling away from the net for some reason and left McD in the middle of two men. Yes he did has responsibly of the passing lane. If he does to clear the crease then he leave the back door completely wide open for an easy goal.

If you going to bash McD, at least use a good example cause the one you used he did nothing wrong. Girardi was the one that should have taken care of that guy.
