So how is he playing...? What's his offensive upside...?

Alll you hear about is Zidlicky...and I love the guy but with his big year I think the emergence of Hamhuis has lost some press.....

Is this guy a future PP QB...? or an allround D-man who can also play the PP....

Does he have Norris upside...?

Hamhuis has come in and calmly played some solid hockey. A few bad passes and mistakes here and there, but who wouldn't expect that from the youngster? Hamhuis had a very solid game today against the Bruins, laying some solid hits and standing up some of the bigger Bruins players. Hamhuis is getting some PP time, although he'll have to watch Timonen and Zidlicky run it for now (probably better...). I'm suprised at the ice time Hamhuis is getting, but if he continues to play well, leave it be. Hamhuis has a great shot and almost got the Preds a goal today with his shot. I'm still not sure yet on his offensive upside, but right now his defensive side (of a defenseman ) is showing up very well.
