Im also worried about his backward mobility, speedy forwards can expose Percy's feet when they drive wide.
I would very much agree with your assessment of him. I think that he's done well on this team because he definately played the style of Cameron (quiet responsible....somewhat boring defenseman) and now still for Boyd who has pretty much continued that style. From my understanding, it wasn't until the Memorial Cup that people really noticed him. He's done well in the OHL, but I'm not so sure that he's going to be strong enough or tough enough for the NHL.
