Just because he prefers to play that position that shouldn't mean that he should be granted to play there. He is an adequate defenseman though a little too slow footed to be effective. (he got burned three times tonight trying to pinch)

The guy has the size of a beast. Really good looking shot and skating forward with the puck a real terror in trying to stop.  In addition he is a goalies biggest nightmare when he parks his big azz in front of the net 

Not that this topic matters a whole lot since he is not a Bruins player but to me its strange he plays a position that doesn't truly match his skill set
