He's looked just great out there on the ice. More reliable than I ever remember him being. Again, I think he looked good in the AHL but nothing outright amazing.
Agree to disagree. I thought he was the best defensive defenseman for the Wolfpack over the last few years every time I watched them play, and I was a big fan of the pick in general. I thought he should have made the big club at least last year, and maybe earlier.
He's just a very, very smart player. I really, really hope he doesn't get hurt because it'll be a HUGE blow to this team's future on the blueline, and for me personally, it'll be crushing because he's one of the few really bright spots for me as a Ranger fan away from the ice over what has been an extremely frustrating decade.
