Nicely said. I dont expect Hamilton to come on board and get paired up with Chara in his rookie season playing 25+ mins a night. Just as I didnt expect Seguin to play on Bostons top line his rookie year. I have complete confidence that the coaching staff will handle Hamilton properly, 3rd pairing limited minutes and press box duty. Having said that, I think he is a very good dman and will eventually play himself into a top pairing role within the next 3 or so seasons.
