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.
He doesn't even resemble the guy who played his first two games. My big question with him is his ability to handle NHL speed, I must say he's making a believer out of me, he cuts off the ice quite well and he's fantastic behind the net isolating players.
