Holzer is starting to look like the AHL player he is ... and I mean that in a good way.

He's starting to be able to play the same way and looks like he can do in the NHL what he can do in the AHL.

In the AHL I thought he physically could command his space, and I'm seeing him do that in the NHL.

IMO he can play either 1st. or 2nd. pairing in the NHL, and I think he'd be great for Phaneuf.
