Eh Islander fans seem to be split on him. Here is what one of their fans said:

Quote:
He was a conference All Star the past couple years. In terms of his potential I can't see him being more then a serviceable bottom pairing defensemen in the NHL with a long shot of being a decent second pairing guy.

I think it's one of those cases if you don't have much prospect depth it's well worth a shot but the fact he was a UFA this summer and didn't get much interest probably speaks volumes what the NHL scouts feel about him(but once in a blue moon a guy will slip through the cracks and maybe he can translate his offensive to the NHL and become a 40-50 point guy)
