Besides the fact that he's a top paring LD, of course.

Just trying to get a feel for his playing style.
Great puck mover and offensive defenseman. Can skate with the puck, make strong passes, and join the rush. Good shot. Strong skater, not huge but can certainly match up physically. Not the strongest in the defensive zone, but certainly not the weakest either. Offense is his best defense in his case. Would fit in well in our system, but would fit great in any system. His offensive game is comparable to Shattenkirk, but Yandle is better in the defensive zone.
