Crankshaft has thrown some of the greatest body checks in Sharks history. That adams apple injury totally softened his passive-aggressive behavior. Its safe to say that many western conference forwards are very happy he is gone. Yes he is slow. Yes he tried playing with the puck a bit too much in the defensive zone. And yes, he is a very effective defensive defenseman. For the Sharks, that slowness was causing too many issues (hence what happened after that 7-0 start). With Demers healthy and the advent of Irwin and Tennyson, it was time to let go of the slowness on D and move to a different way to play.
