I think you are asking too much from Postma considering his mold and level of NHL experience. Not all defensemen come in a la Karlsson and have it figured out immediately. Some D men don't 'get it' til they are in their late twenties.

I think all you can do is continue to look for improvement. As long as he is heading in the right direction then you have to be happy with his development.
