Bolts STH here, with a quick take on "Jarvis:"

He's not stellar but not as bad as some of the detractors make him out to be. Skates and handles the puck pretty well, but is not physical to any great degree. Will make some solid defensive plays, and will also make the occasional bonehead play - true of most D-men in the league.

Because he isn't afraid to handle the puck, he does make a fair number of bad passes that lead to turnovers and scoring chances against. That, to me, is the biggest down side to his game. If he plays conservatively, and is paired with a solid stay at home partner, he should be a serviceable #6/7 D-man. Hope it works out in Philly.
