The "he's only XX" excuse is getting real old. He's been in the league long enough that if he is what people were/are hoping he wIll become, he would have made bigger strides towards that. Yes, he is an NHL defensemen but he is not a PPQB and he is not a first pairing shutdown defensemen. He was drafted to be the former, if he doesn't become that, the pick was a failure.

He has shown offensive touch and acceptable defense at times, but not consistently enough for me to give hm the benefit of the doubt any longer. I expect nothing above and beyond from him going forward and if he does somehow turn it all around I'll be pleasantly surprised.
