You are talkin 2 maybe 3 times he didn't clear the zone in 4 games. He also skated through the crease with the puck on a giveaway, yet, he recovers maybe better than anyone on the backline. That's why I have no problems with the occasional gaffe. Other Dmen playing more minutes on our side have had bigger problems with this.

Not a physical brute but man has he been aggressive, good at taking away time and space from the Caps forwards.
