In my opinion, yes and no. It is obviously a concern, but for a puck rushing defenseman, its less important. Guys like Theodore play a style that revolves around puck possession, and transitioning the puck from defense to offense. He isn't going to be your top PK defenseman, but if you want a defenseman that can take charge of your offense, Theodore's style much interest you.
That is why you see guys like Derrick Pouliot drafted high, he isn't the biggest player but wow, can he move the puck! And Theodore isn't small, he has a big frame that he can fill out, making him less of a liability.
My problem with him is that he sometimes tries to do too much. That might negatively effect a puckmoving defenseman.
