IMHO he has looked very good for a rookie defenseman. Hitchcock has played him intelligently but he has looked good. I'm a bit concerned about durability due to his size, but so far he has banged with the best of them.

He's been pretty solid. Seems to have some chemistry with Seidenberg.

Agreed. But it seems like he is always putting himself into positions to get hammered, but maybe thats just me

Although phsically he gets outmatched on occasion, he is an upgrade over Bundy (by the way he benched I believe the entire third and OT after the chase around the net lead to the second goal).
He still makes some "young" mistakes on when to pinch and rush but has good instincts and will get better if given Bundys time at this level.

that may have been an injury related benching... god knows he should have been benched after that idiotic turnover though.

i think meyer has fit in well. when fully healthy i don't think he's in the lineup, but i would rather have him playing than Therien... he's had a few turnovers (the one against Ottawa for example), but they've been due to indecision and/or trying to do a bit too much... which can get coached up.

He's looked like he belongs. He has everything he needs to succeed in the NHL except size. If he were another two inches taller and 25 pounds heavier he would be a good second pair defenseman in the NHL. I still prefer Seidenberg to him, but I could see him costing Therien a job when Pitkanen or Desjardins get back.

we really need them back on the PP... Forsberg is the playmaker -- obviously -- but the organized control of the PP is definitely lacking without consistent play from these two along the blueline.

solid play on both ends, would consider his play better then that of a typical #6, #7 d-man you find in the league today.

I think he's been very good. He does get pounded every now and then a la Petr Svoboda - maybe not that bad...

He's been good on the PP too and getting plenty of minutes for a rookie.

If nothing else this will give Clarke some trade value to package with another player/pick for a stretch run player.

That is sort of what I meant by "young" mistakes and as he gets used to the game at this level and more coaching he will hopefully limit those.

I think Meyer has done very well. This was because expectaions were not so great of him. Im finding myself saying, 'Yeah Meyer, nice play' several times as of late. Plus I like his willingness to go deep, and play a little offence.

He's gotten better with every game, I think.



He's better than Chris Therien

I like Meyer. Reminds me a little of Brian Rafalski. Put him with a banger and let him roam and I think he can do some really good things.
