He's been very solid, much to my chagrin.

He's big but doesn't seem to get rattled (although I'm hoping the Rangers park someone's behind in his face all night tonight to bother him a bit). He also has a very strong team in front of him, which has helped his stats quite a bit. London has the best defensive forward in the league (in my opinion) in front of him, along with a couple of other very good defenseman - a luxury he won't have in Philadelphia or Adirondack in the foreseeable future.

I'm hopeful but cautiously optimistic. He looks good, but it's early to tell what he'll be like without a strong defense in front and/or forwards who can score almost at will to give him room to make an error and not lose the game.
