He is very inconsistent, one play he may throw a big hit, the next he may hesitate to play a puck because he knows a check is coming.

His body language does not reflect a poised, confident defenseman, he seems to be very easily rattled by other players, which I hope he outgrows ASAP. He needs to focus on power skating this summer, and sharpen up on his decision making behind his net.

Also, shot accuracy,but that goes without saying. I remember last year, he had a great game 7 against Ottawa and against the Caps. I still remember that beautiful goal, lets hope he can recapture some of that scoring prowess, he seems very shaky to me.
