The article states he MIGHT not be a superstar defender but a top 4 puckmover who can play on the pp. He can skate well, read the play well and is HIGHLY competitive. His defense they stated is "reasonably well". I just didnt like the comparison to Petr Svoboda.
With the 41st pick, I'd take Ian McCoshen. Said he has the skill to be a "work-horse" defender. 20-30 minute type of player. He won't provide a lot of offense, but will be a guy you can play against other team's top defenders. I guess I am leaning towards being able to draft two defenders and playing them side-by-side. With the 2nd pick if Morin is still around I'd take him also.
I'd like to see them get Jacob de la Rose with the 41st pick. I think that guy is gonna be a steal if he is around in the second round.
