I like the kid, but if you think he's going to be a top pairing defenseman, you're probably setting yourself up for disappointment.
Probably a poor choice of words on my part. I still believe Myers can be a #1 defenseman. The point I was trying to make is that McNabb shows the ability to be a physical defenseman and help out on the offense where Myers has rarely shown a physical presence.

And, yes, I believe McNabb has the makings of a top pairing defenseman if not a #1. But, if just about any of the players already selected in the poll don't meet expectations I would be disappointed. As a life long Bills and Sabres fan disappointment comes with the territory.
