He isn't on our top pairing (MacDonald-Hamonic). But he has outplayed Streit on the 2nd pairing. He is very good partner for a player like Streit. I don't think it's fair to write him off for the next couple years. Everything he has shown so far has been exceptional, and he doesn't have an offensive instinct to throw him off his game.
