Not worried about what a writer has to say about a player that is killed because his his defensive deficiencies when his career stats point to being not so bad in that regards.

The team that he plays for has never been one to dominate a game defensively which means his defensive stats will never look pretty. But for all his warts, he brings other elements to the game that make him alot better than what we have curently.

He's a smarter defenceman than what we have, he's better at the point than any option that we have or have had since Brian Leetch 5-6 years ago.

Defensively he's not great, but I wouldn't label him any worse than the motley crew we have right now.
