I think a lot of people have the idea that around the 300 game mark you have a pretty good idea where a player is a d-man. He's getting close to it and he's definitely a top 4 guy. What remains to be seen is if he can cut down on his mental mistakes (he's good for one boneheaded play a game) and get some confidence in his offensive game (he misses the net most shots.) I see him as a first pairing guy with #1 potential in the next couple of years so I agree with your sentiments. He's going to be a stud.

With all that said, we desperately need a top line forward and Kulikov might be able to bring that back as a centerpiece of a package.
