He will never be the 50-60 point offensive D-man he was originally drafted as. But this kid will be touching 40 points sooner or later.
I actually think he has a few things to learn defensively, mainly being cool and moving the puck effectively in the defensive zone. He's been better at it this year and it's been real nice to see. If we could combine all of his strengths and all of Staal's strengths you'd have the best defensive defenseman in the league and a guy who could chip in 30-40 points
