A 30 minute per game ppg defenceman with above average defence. Haven't had one of those in the NHL for quite some time.

Then again, I might be totally wrong - and he'll end up a new Wade Redden
Lofty expectations but he does have a way of creating offensive chances every night...surround him with talent and I think people would be surprised of what he's capable of. Mike Green is overrraaaateed as a result of playing on a run and gun team and PP featuring Backstrom, Ovie, Semin...

I think he's got the most natural offensive talent of any blue liner in the league. Still just a raw 20 year old....there are players in this upcoming draft that are more "man" then he is right now.
