More than anything he was just trying way to much with the puck. Stuff he can do in Juniors but has to realize he can't do in the NHL.
I dunno. I just don't figure he thinks the game well enough to have top end potential. For me, he's never looked like much more than a 5-6 D. A physical shutdown guy with above-average mobility for his size. Which is fine. What NHL team doesn't want that? But if he becomes a top pairing guy, I'll be happy as heck, but i'm certainly not counting on it (not that I really count on any prospect)
