Every other defensive category he is behind Beauchimin in. He doesn't hit, he doesn't block shots. He is a good player... but his success in transition is more a product of the strong forward group Vancouver has than his own skills.
I'd hardly classify a 25-30pt defenseman as a guy with 'no offensive upside', but whatever. There are players who have NHL careers and score 10-15 points from the blue line; now that is limited offensive upside.
