mikes still a horror show defensively on most nights. his skating in mud act doesnt play well against speedy top 6 forwards.

his best attribute continues to be his puck management and passing skills. he does pass the pill very well. the rest is just average.

As to the bolded, that just isn't true. He had some rough games down the stretch, when he was playing with a hernia. Before the injury, he was one of our best defensemen for the previous year and a half.

I reiterate my question about John Moore, however. SO many people either think he's arrived or think he will surpass Del Zotto as he "develops." They are the same age. Del Zotto has shown four years of regular development. What makes anyone think that Moore will suddenly surpass Del Zotto when MDZ has been the significantly better player for the entirety of their careers?
