It is scary, last year people compared his upside to Tobias Enstrom....to which I laughed. The way he played last night defensively was a look into the way you could expect him to play in 2-3 years consistently. Offensively...he's capable of a point per game in any given season.

The kid's got a great head, striving for greatness but humble and level-headed at the same time. The funny thing is there are still improvements he can make to his offensive game.

If he manages to finish a point per game with Ottawa running up the standings....he may significantly push Chara to become the youngest Dman since Orr to win the Norris. TSN's late night hockey program proclaimed him the best defensemen in the NHL this season and The Hockey News predicted him to win the Norris as well.

17 points and +17 in his last 12 games. A 21 year old superstar is born. The Sens don't lose when EKs on his game (9-1-2).
