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.
Its good to hear that he is hitting his stride after a tentative start. Hopefully his play can continue to get better for you guys & your team has a long season! I was happy to see that Gillis was able to go out & get a young dman who by the sounds of it has some promise.

It may be a little early but what would you guys say he projects as? Any comparisons?
