I definitely don't see 'top pairing' like you mentioned... However, I've been wrong before ;-)
Eh, the same could be said about McDonagh before he came into the league.

Erixon's top quality, like most swedish defensemen, is his hockey IQ, which is very very good. He made some incredibly intelligent plays on the Rangers last year in the offense zone that I simply haven't seen our defensemen do. I don't think he'll be a game changer, but he will slot in nicely next to a star on the top pairing.
