I really don't understand why some fans think he's a num 1 D , he has little lateral mobility , he doesn't make great outlet passes , he's adequate in our zone but that's about it . He doesn't produce much offense 5 on 5 unless he starts to go into rover mode . Most of his big hits are on plays where he leaves his position to blind side a guy who's not expecting it .

The guys a quality 2nd pair D who's forced to play as a 1st pair D because we have no one else capable of playing in that role .
Someone else gets it. Thank you.
