I think to start his career he will need to play with somebody who's good defensively. Him with a guy like O'Byrne would be a place to potentially start. If he plays well, maybe even on a pairing with EJ.

Long term I think he'll surely be playing with an offensive partner. Ideally Elliott because the two were fantastic together as a pairing in Saskatoon in Duncan's draft year. He plays his best while with an offensive partner, but that transition might just take some time at the NHL level.

You can never have too much depth on D. I would really hope that the Avalanche are looking to get one back as part of a potential O'Reilly deal. I could see a D prospect and a solid NHL forward being the return, although I still hope it gets resolved instead.
