Not so sure about 1st line pairing
, he's not as smooth as some players, but over time he can learn. I look at him as our own Brooks Orpik (ceiling) or at worst Hal Gil (floor).
Think he's like 20, he's come a far way. Most people call him a bust because its been i think 3 drafts since I think we took him. He was raw and a huge project then, most people want results immediately, doesn't happen that way... especially with defensemen.
When he is called up, he will be 3rd pairing with some sheltered minutes. The process to get him up to his full potential will take a while, he is only 21 (next month). I don't mind watching him along the way.
