Well, common sense would lead me to believe that most people would recognize potential franchise defensemen when they see them, but through my various internet travels I've come to realize that's not the case.

He plays 25 minutes a game against the toughs (with lousy zone starts), with very impressive results, and can also run the powerplay. He has almost the same P/PG as Drew Doughty, on a MUCH worse team - and is only 23.

At least it's good to know it's not just Oilers fans who undervalue their best players.
