No, I'm siding with PK because he's proven to me that he's capable of being an everyday top-pair d-man.

He's not without his faults. Like many young players, he takes some bad decisions in his own zone. He needs to improve his decision-making. I find he overrates his offensive ability, leading him to sometimes try overly ambitious rushes. He's a great skater, but his hands aren't elite. He's also not a very good PP QB yet.

But he's capable of producing offence. He thrives in high pressure situations, which is essential in a market like Montreal. He can play huge minutes. And people forget how good he is at shutting down the opposing team's best players. He's capable of executing such assignments as good as the best d-men in the league.
