Honestly I was kind of surprised with the love for it too. I mean by no stretch is he a bad defenseman here, the guy is solid and will be a fine bottom pairing player ES but he's....I don't know he's just so unspectacular in my view. At the time of the pick my thought was that it was too early, and there are better defensemen but....I don't think he's a bad pick either by any means.
