His pinching has been excellent, especially for a supposedly ultra defensive d-man. He's really not afraid to get up in the play... he really seems to like drifting up towards the unmarked backdoor. He's a bit of a right-sided Del Zotto, in this respect.
His tenacity around our net is absolutely unparalleled as well, which this team sorely needs. Whenever he's on the ice and Lundqvist/Biron gloves it, if an opposing forward even thinks about a follow-up swipe, he's there and in their face. What I really like is how it's not a % of the time, like with a lot of our other d-men: it's 100% of the time. Add to that his pretty intimidating presence (he's got a jaw that wouldn't look out of place on an action movie star), and it adds an utterly needed presence to our blueline.
