You'd be in the majority i'd say, he's an incredibly solid defenseman. I'd go as far as saying if I could have any defenseman on this team for the future, it would be him. He's not incredibly flashy, but he gets the job done and he's so reliable.

I said it after we traded Carter/Richards, I would have been fine had we traded one of them for a guy like Suter etc, where it makes sense going ahead. In hindsight, with Nashville potentially losing a bunch of their offensive core, we likely could have traded and got Suter (As it seems they are intent on keeping Weber and are stocked at D). Complete speculation I know, just would have made more sense.
