    I’m ok with him as a 7th defenseman on the roster and see his ultimate potential as filling the Matt Greene replacement role on the team.

    It will be interesting to see what shakes out between Forbort,Folin,Fantenberg and MacD. I expect LaDue to have a roster spot next to Martinez by the trade deadline. My guess is Folin will battle with Kurtis for that last spot.

    1) Makes Muzzin or Martinez more likely to be traded (not because he's as good, but because the depth allows it)
    2) I call him McDammit!

    This guy is still awful. Yes, I understand dmen take longer to develop. But his play is not getting any better and I expect to see some improvement. Other than a good fight and big hit, he doesn't bring much else.

    Don't forget how crappy Folin is too. Forbort is behind the poison as well.

    How many rookies show marked and noticeable improvement during their first stint?

    Bruising dmen are liabilities now that interference penalties are being enforced. You can’t have half your d corp include Forbort, Folin and MacDermid. Ideally only one of those types is on the roster. Forbort is the only trade able one of that group. Blake has move someone and get LaDue some minutes with the big club

    He's just fine for a rookie. People need to stop expecting everyone to be Doughty. He's going to make mistakes, he's going to make bad reads, he's going to be thinking when he should be reacting. All part of the learning process. Way too early to tell whether he's going to be a solid NHL player or not.

    You all are wrong. The correct answer is: "is a liability and should be traded".
