He's skittish with the puck in his own zone. His positioning is suspect and his decision making is lacking.

What he really needs is an off-season studying AV's more complex system now that he's got a year of it under his belt, he should be better able to grasp it next year.

He can work on his reads and decisions as well as his positioning.

If Grubby and Greening is the return, then this would be a deal best not made.

He's got talent. He will NEVER be a Norris winner, but he can be serviceable point getter while playing competent D.

Unless we are getting a former 1st round draft pick that is also struggling a bit but has potential to be what was projected, then we need to keep this asset.

We are not losing games BECAUSE of MDZ. He's not been part of the solution but he's also not THE problem. He's A problem, but not THE problem.
But Kreider being awful last year is Torts' fault?


MDZ had a subpar year last year and that's carried over this year. But he was really good in 11-12 and has not been nearly as bad as the majority of this board tries to say. He's heads and shoulders better than John Moore.
