I was high on him becasue he was such a go-to guy for Sask and a great shot, but the more I saw of him the more I thought he was one of the main reasons for the Blades up and down season.
I do not include him in my thoughts to become a future Habs contributor on D.
On the other end of the Spectrum, Tyler Myers was stud defensively in his junior but struggles in the NHL. I wouldn't judge Dietz on a 1 game sample and even less when we realize that defensemen reaches their peak around 28-30 years old.
