Not a Caps fan, but this kid is awesome.

He played like a legit top pairing defenseman as a rookie, and logged a ****-ton of minutes on one of the best teams in NHL. He's the definition of an all-around defenseman - he can play PP, PK, he can shoot it, join the rush, and start the rush. Very heady player, too. Also played very well against the Rangers in the playoffs from what I saw.

For a comparison...hard to think of one. Think of any big, RH, two-way defenseman. Maybe Brent Burns, but better defensively, and a bit worse offensively.
