You are right about him not having a steady partner, but when you are SUPPOSED to be a top 4 d man that shouldnt be an excuse for him playing as poorly as he did in his own end.

You will like him on the PP and when he has the opp to make the first pass out of the zone. The problem is that these opps are becoming fewer and fewer as he is now slower to the puck and is moved of it fairly easily

His best yr was the first his of his five year deal with the Isles. Take out the yr he missed because of injury and his play steadily declined over the other 3 yrs.
Wasn't he injured all season?
