He's already a top 2 defenseman on most any team in the league. Almost universally regarded as a top 15-20 defenseman in the entire NHL. As a 26 year old who's only been playing the position for 8-9 years. Not to mention his skill set and frame. Any team in the league would kill to have that talent on their squad. He's worth much more than the #5 overall by himself.
And there's not much question as to what he'll cost, nor where he wants to be.
