I would more like him to work on his defensive game tho and work on preventing his brain farts he has.

I agree his role will be a defensive D, but its encouraging to see him put up some points offensively as well.



I wonder how his EV strength minutes have changed as well. He is getting a lot more PP time, and playing 1st PK minutes, so maybe his EV strength minutes have decreased as a result. Hes also entrusted to be the #1 shutdown D onthat team, so I would imagine offense isn't the primary concern for him when hes one

But yeah that Smid trade was horrible and didn't address any areas of need, while weakening already horrible back end
And yet we've been doing fine without him.
