Once he gets his confidence, ive got little doubt he will be a solid top 6 guy.
Belanger and Eager/Jones arent that much of an upgrade. There was a reason he was sent down and it wasnt because he sucked but because he needs to be playing more then 10 minutes a game with scrubs.

So lets not say Magnus had the benefit of playing with superior linemates when he didnt
