You don't have to support him for the Norris or anything (I don't mean to replay the Karlsson threads of last year), but do yourself a favour and watch this kid. In a cookie-cutter league, he's one of a kind.
Yeah yeah sure.. 30 years from now he'll be getting slagged just like any other "offensive" defenseman around here.
Seriously though: I hope he can keep it up and have success.
If more defensemen get the green light again the game will be a lot more entertaining.
