Hopefully, he may get more offensive as he matures, but his hitting game is there. Many of his scraps you see on hockey fights.com Walters buries somebody. I hated as a forward knowing certain d-men will bury you in a second, and you do think about it out on the ice. Saw stars more than once. Sure you know that Robb.
You are certainly correct. Staios was a defensive defenceman in The NHL, but not as good a hitter or fighter as Walters is likely to be. Walters will likely be more effective at "punishing" forwards who get in his area. So, yes, maybe Butcher would be a better comparison. Stevens was a lot bigger, and was very good on offence. I see Walters' top scoring potential at roughly Jackman's level.
