Players get stigmas for never becoming what they were expected to be, but that's a very far cry from being useless. He could be exactly what bruins need on the backed, and substantially improve transition while not having all the defensive ineptitude of corvo kabs or wideman.
I remember first hearing about JBo when he was 15. Skates like Orr... Big.. dominant offensively and defensively...

Ok so he never lived up to that. True. He'd still be the 2nd best overall D on the B's. Don't know if he's worth 6m or if we could afford him, but if there was a way to do it Chia would be negligient if he didn't explore it.
