Adam McQuaid, Doug Murray play a similar game at the highest level and to me they do it without letting the physicality take over. For instance, Braydon Coburn. Big guy, takes alot of dumb minors when he's really challenged to play defense.
Yeah in that regard he's been just fine.
It'll be interesting to see how he pans out. He has the right kind of character to be the player we want him to be. It's just a matter of rounding out his game. He seems to be on the right track in that regard. Hoping for a bigger and meaner Brooks Orpik. Orpik used to be a really nasty guy, but he's toned it down over the years to become a better shutdown guy.
