I don't want my previous comments to make it seem like I hate SDC, I'll just save my vote for him until atleast Boro and JOB are off the board.
His defensive game is severely underrated. The guy is a thief and can pick anyone's pocket. I specifically remember him picking Datsyuk's pocket in his first NHL game. Very very good at getting pucks off players in the neutral zone and his own end. He got caught out of position enough but nothing indicates that he won't be able to improve on this like essentially every first year pro does. I'd actually wager that he's going to be a very good two way player and probably be a big PK guy down the road.

As for not being able to take a hit....

He then got up and scored his first NHL goal.

Starts at about 5:14. One of the nicest goals of all last season for Senators imo.
