I'm not sure if you knew that's what I was referring to. I'd have to be insane to think he'll ever be a #2. There are only 3 guys currently on this team that I think will ever have a chance to be a legit top line defender: Goligoski (already is IMO), Larsen, and Oleksiak.
You're right. Thought you were going the other direction.

Yeah when I said Gill earlier I was careful to say at the top end. Vance is a guy I'd love to see get in the mix, but I don't have strong feelings one way or the other on his ability to become an NHL regular.

He has just as good a chance or taking Boris Valabik's career path.
