I said the same thing in the days after the draft. I don't think it's the lone reason we picked him at #10, but I certainly believe it's a big reason why we passed on other players who were falling in order to take him. It's been a long time since this team had a player who could play meaningful minutes while still being an intimidating presence on the ice.

I like that they're building a tough, gritty team. However, my concern is that they're having a hard time injecting the skill into the lineup at the same time.
