I don't get how I'm making him sound like Orr, especially when I've consistently said that I don't see him putting together his offense at the same level as guys like Keith, much less Niedermayer.
I've consistently called him a defensive defenseman with elite skating and above average decision making, with comparatively little of the size/ability to handle physical play question marks that come with most players with that skillset, which is what he is.
What I've been trying to underscore, is his importance to Buffalo despite their bounty of other young blueliners, because he's
by leaps and bounds
the best defensive defenseman in the system, in an organization that might sorely need them soon depending on how Regehr ages and Myers develops.
He's just not worth moving unless it's in a blockbuster deal for clear upgrades at the NHL level.
