As much as Fraser bring a different element to the rest of our d-man (save for Komisarek), I don't think he has what it takes to be a consistent bottom pairing d-man for a playoff team in the NHL.

His skating is not great, he has trouble clearing the zone, at times panics under pressure, etc.

I think he's fine as a 7th d-man but I don't see him being higher on the depth chart than Kostka and eventually Holzer (in terms of our AHL -> NHL d-men).
