On the other hand if his defensive game improves, not necessarily into something amazing, simply as a player that is not prone to mistakes and is able to properly use his size to his advantage than he will have the chance to become a good number 2.
That's quite a range of predictions. Realistically a 3rd pairing D-man? That would be disappointing as just last year his potential wasn't realistically seen as low as a bottom pairing D. Just because it takes time for prospects to develop to me doesn't warrant setting predictions at rock bottom.
