Only 23 years old too. 27 points in 51 games in the AHL last year and played 20 games in the bigs, 5 points and +5 with the Islanders. Maybe I'm just reading stats and he's not that good. Meh... no real room for him here.
I think he had the benefit of being one of the better defensemen in a poor draft (particularly on defense) which allowed him to go in the first round. That first round status probably gave him more opportunities and probably had people expecting more than they should've from him (including being so high on SJ's prospect list).

It's kind of cool how we took 2 defensemen in that draft (Petry and Peckham) in the 2nd and 3rd round, and you could probably put them in the top 5 defensemen from that draft already.
