The one thing Sauve does have going for him is that he (apparently) has a heavy, hard shot. Defencemen that do seem to have a chance of outperforming their Junior numbers because they end up on an NHL PP are the big guys with heavy shots (Weber, Chara, Foster, Aucoin, etc.)

Obviously it's still very unlikely but if he can figure out how to make his shot an asset he could find himself on the PP one day.
