Gernat still has issues defensively. He definitely gets caught out of position every now and then. He's a gambler. Gernat is unreal offensively though, he was almost a point per game last year as a rookie defenseman! Great on the PP.

Musil is pretty much the opposite of Gernat. He's a very strong, tough, defensive minded shut down type. Great on the PK.

In summary: Gernat: Offensive minded, very risky player.
Musil: Defensive minded, very safe player.
