How intimidating could he be ... ?
I thought I remember someone saying, best case scenario, could be another Scott Stevens.
That's why I was ok with this pick, assuming somewhere approaching that ballpark.
It's not clear to me how much these particular injuries will take away from that hope, if at all.
However, I agree it is a fair question to ask if that high a benchmark should ever have been linked to him in the first place....
