Actually, his skating is even better than what I said. More than one comparison to Niedermayer after a quick google. That, with his above average IQ and willingness to play the body and take hits to make plays (even if he isn't a bruiser) is going to be a deadly combination. All of his detractors act like he isn't elite at things and its just not true.
I'm hoping this is what our NHL depth chart will look like in 2-3 years:
(In No particular order)

Myers
McNabb
Pysyk
Sekera
Ehrhoff
Regher (If he regresses too much then another solid defensive defenseman that can take the body)

----

Sulzer
(A bunch of defensive prospects)
