I think he's the best defenseman from a breakout, first pass standpoint. However, in terms of pure "playmaking," ie, vision and hockey sense, I think he's pretty average, actually. You don't see him making the sort of plays that guys like Zidlicky, Timonen, or even Grebeshkov were capable of making. You don't see the sort of needle threading that you get with a truly elite playmaking d-man...Dan Boyle, Lubo Visnovsky, etc.
