IF he's improved as much as everyone says he'll be a very good BOTTOM PAIRING defenseman.

If he manages to be top-4 - without having lost the so-called "toughness" (read: enforcer capability) that keeps folks blind to his faults - I will be shocked beyond measure.

About the only way I see that even slightly working is if, by some miracle, he and Klein discover enough chemistry to win a Nobel Prize. And that it's a genuine partnership rather than Klein covering for OKT's faults.
