I hadn't read that but would certainly take the Scott Stevens comparison. I don't think he has the offensive upside based on what has been said about him though so he seems more like Adam Foote with wheels to me.
Maybe RS can comment of his open ice hitting capabilities. That is something that set Stevens apart from a defensive standpoint. He was mean and he had really perfected the timing of open ice hitting. Personally I don't think there is anything that an offensive player on the other team fears worse than a solid open ice hit. Footer was tough but moreso in front of the net or on the boards.
