Mobile big-minute defenseman.
are so so
Amac is not good at moving the puck, he is a turnover machine. He is OK on offense, alot of the reason he has so many points is that he is on our first PP, which I dont think he will be in Philly. He has his shots get blocked by more than anyone I have ever seen, he really needs to work on that.
He plays pretty physical along the boards, but he could get stronger around the front of the net. Great shot blocker, good defensive PKer.
Alot of us feel he would have done alot better this year as a 3/4 guy and that he was over used as a 1/2 guy, and the amount of minutes he played really hurt his game. That being tired led to so many of his brainless give aways. I think if his minutes are cut down to under 20 and is moved to 3/4th pair he could be a good player... not worth 5 million a year, but definitely a better player than he was this year for us.
