He has been a solid third pairing defenseman. I agree with wfome that he doesn't bring any measurable skill to the bottom pairing that a cheaper player couldn't bring, but I also like the balance he adds. From what I can tell he allows Franson to open up a bit. We see Cody using his offensive skill more because SOB is playing a strict shutdown role. I also think Shane has helped Franson with his physicality. I'm sure I'm not the only fan to notice that 4 is out there pushing people around more now.

Not a liability (except for the recent stupid play for which he earned a two game suspension), but nothing more than a bottom pair guy. Although he did put on a pretty sweet move a while back where he ended up having to jump over a body to keep moving the puck. I thought it was pretty awesome considering who it was
