Yes. I think he gets way too much flak around here. His offensive production may not be up to his talent level, but let's look at the big picture here; He is 22, and is (arguably) the #2 Dman on a Stanley cup champion team. At the very worst, the #3. He has all the tools you want from a defenseman, besides size, and is usually effective in all 3 zones.

If he didn't improve for the rest of his career, I would say $3-$3.5 is fair for him. Luckily, he is extremely young for a Dman and it is safe to assume he will get better and better.

With that said, I am worried that this rumor is true and he declined $3.5 mil. Perhaps it was long term, which would not be wise on his end.
