Not being the most physical player doesn't mean he won't be an useful guy, but to maximize his potential and value to the team, he has to become a mean and effective front of the net clearer IMO an aspect we lack since the good days of Mike Komisarek. I will never expect him to run guys with big hits, in fact it's something pretty rare with 6'6 + defensemans (look at Chara, Pronger, Gill, Myers etc. they have some highlight hits, but not as often has you think they would unlike guys like Kasparaitis, Konstantinov, Stevens etc.). He has to be intimidating and make forwards pay the price in the defensive zone, in the front of the net, during puck battle, he can and should overpower others players.
Thanks to the others replies that seems also to show he has maybe some work to do on that area of his game.
