i've met pock a few times (had a couple classes with him at umass) and what i like is he seems fairly humble. he had to work pretty hard to make the transition from forward to defenseman and i think he's still making that transition. once he gets a full season of nhl/ahl hockey under his belt playing D, i think we'll see a nice improvement in the smoothness and production of his overall game. i'm willing to cut him some slack on his defensive play, at least for this year.

True. You do not learn all aspects of the d-game within 2 seasons. Although I think his decision-making is pretty good, he seems to know when to jump in the play and when to stay at home.

I have seen him at the WC and the weakest point of his game is going one-on-one on onrushing forwards. If he is able to improve this area of his game, he should be no liability on defense.
