I've seen Olie play a lot. He will certainly add toughness but he is not stupid with it. He is a pretty smart defenseman who thinks "D" first but can push the puck a little as well. I expect him to be a stay at home guy and won't goon it up unless someone asks him to. I don't see him trying Lucic right out of the gate tonight but McQuaid, Thornton or Campbell may be options just to show he is willing and able.
