More than the 3 past weeks, he has been very good since being benched on the 1/22/2014 against the Penguins. Since then he has 11 pts in 29 games, he's +10 (for thoses who like that stat) and he has played on average 20:59 of ice time. Also, I'm happy Therrien has seen his offensive potential and is using him on the PP (something we have been saying for so long) and he played well in that role.

Since then he's a good top 4 D like last season and if he can play at this level on a consistent base (I think it was a tough return from injury) he's worth his contract.
