I disagree. The only thing he 'figured out' was jumping into the rush a bit more, and scored a few more goals and points, later in the year.

Defensively his game didn't change much.

But if that's the player he is, that's fine. Is he an NHL player? Absolutely. I just don't see him gaining more ice and playing significant mins on PK, etc. Will or can he play top 4 mins. Not until he's more competent in his zone, and reduce the giveaways, etc. he would have a very difficult time playing playoff hockey, IMO. Redmond would be better suited to playoff hockey, which makes him higher on my depth chart than Postma.

But that's the sign of a young dman.
