That being said, I feel he has limited his mistakes defensively. I'm more worried about him making a dumb decision in the offensive zone at this point like his play against the Hurricanes, on the Tlusty goal. Even then, those are few and far in between, IMO. He's just a "safe" player at this point, he needs to be more of a factor offensively, and he needs to use his peskiness. He did today, nailing Perrault in the first period.
Yes, I agree, we need MDZ to get out of that "safe" mentality and strive to take more risks, put up more points, become more physical.

I feel like Sullivan doesn't see this kids full potential, he can be so much more when his game fully blossoms.
