I like Harrington at the junior level, but I can only see him being an average NHL Dman.. but, I will say, I think Harrington will be an NHLer for sure. Can't say that about every prospect.
Pretty much everything I agree with as a Knights season ticket holder. Just doesn't do anything great enough to see him becoming a high end NHLer IMO, average foot speed, average puck skills and not physical. I struggle to come up with top four NHL defenseman who don't something a lot better than Harrington. He's got the smarts but you need the physical tools to excel against the best players in the world.

Tender Rip has the right idea of his trade value, only real high end drafted prospects hold substantial trade value.
