I think it is more about the player he is rather than the player he could be or could have been. His youth is a bonus, but overall the Kings need a tall defensive defenseman, and they don't care at all about offensive upside for this position. Ellerby slots in nicely where Greene used to be, much better than Muzzin or Campbell.
The player he is right now is exactly what the Kings need, and his youth gives us a good option going forward into the future in case we have to move or let go of one of Scuderi/Mitchell/Greene.
