While I think his likely upside is only as a #5 d-man on a good club, I think he'll be one of those 3rd pairing guys whose importance exceeds their spot on the roster.
I have also sort of pegged him as a 4-5 guy, with the outside shot that he becomes a guy who can be the go to on a middle pairing. His physical game still has me a little worried. It is nice to hear that he's bringing it more often recently, but I'll be curious to see how nasty he can get when he's playing men v. boys.
