Agreed. I was concerned a little about his physicality, but as with much of the Rangers D core that has proven to be not as huge an issue.

He is a superior skater to many of our forwards.

Only noticeable difference for me was that at Wisconsin he drove up the ice more, not just in 4 on4 situations.
