His ETA should be NOW but since Sather is running the show, it's a pessimistic September 2004.

Average expectations, future top 4 that can contribute both ways. Offense production has good potential but in general he's very good all around.
Optimistic expectations, a top 2 defenseman getting tons of ice time, anchoring the point on the powerplay. A presence on the PK. Very good all around.
Pessimistic expectations, Malakhov II.

I think it's somewhere between Optimistic and Pessimistic, in preseason he was invisible for his first games then all of a sudden he was the best player on the ice for his last two.
