He's looked smart out there at both ends of the ice. DB's been very complementary too, but said that he doesn't want him to throw him to the wolves with too many minutes right off the bat, which is what he would get if he were to play a regular role with Sid or Geno right now.

For now, I'm fine with him easing in on the 3rd line and only seeing spot top 6 duty. Even ultra-skilled guys like Datsyuk and Giroux broke in on their teams' checking lines.
