They absolutely want him to be their all situations guy. Of course they expect growth, but I also think that they think of him as their no. 1, and they did when they gave him the contract. This wasn't "give him this contract and hope he becomes a no. 1". It was "we know he's a no. 1 already, and hopefully he can become Norris worthy down the road."
"We know he's shown the capability to play #1 role, AND WE HOPE he can return to that role... at worst, he's still an offensive top 4 defensemen who can skate as good as anyone and is 7 feet tall"
