Too much pressure on him from that lead to him being 7th or 8th in Florida and getting traded to the Kings

What I have seen he is not bad. He is big and has good straight line speed but is only ave in his side to side mobility. For defenseman I prefer the side to side mobility over speed. He is weak on his stick and makes some pretty bad passes along the boards in the defensive end. But what I like is his reach and one on one play. I think if he ever decided to get stronger he can be a top 4 defenseman.

You can include me as an Ellerbyfan too.
