I'd say he's well on his way to being a top-2 defender for us and perhaps a #1 next year. Solid player all around. One of a very few who is average or above in just about every aspect of the game.
My sentiments exactly. Had he not missed last year I think you'd be looking at a player who was drafted 2nd round or so of the past draft, maybe higher.

So far he looks to be picking up where he left off from his limited time last year.

Slowly but surely he is turning the corner and will be a very solid defender for this team come the playoffs, if he progresses as he has thus far this season.
