Agreed. It's tough. If he turns out to be a Patrice Bergeron-consistent Selke-type forward with similar scoring prowess you better be getting a top 10 - 20 defenseman back for that. At this point it's all potential but he shut down Malkin his rookie season in the playoffs, that still speaks volumes of his defensive acumen.
