In the 1.5 years since the draft he's literally turned his game around and made it his biggest strength. That's remarkable. However I don't think his offensive game has matured/progressed the way most hoped it would.

I'd take a solid 2-way defenseman over a one-dimensional one any day of the week, however.
Sounds like he is very coachable and is willing to learn and to develop his game. IMO he sound like an athlete that can learn faster than others.
