Bort's looked solid in his limited role. No reason not to be optimistic about his chances going forward considering how he's performed so far, his size and skillset, and his cost-certainty.
Bort actually had surprising offensive instincts and skating ability in the few times he played, imo. He jumped up at the right times, exploited soft spots, and was able to get his shot off. As a rookie. I think there's some room for growth, there.
