Yep, I think he will play every game he is healthy for though.

Each of the 3 (proper, not counting 10-11) stints in the NHL he has had he has done ok in, and in the last stint he was our third best D man after Kimmo and Schenn (2nd after Schenn when Kimmo was down).

Since 06-07 Gus has shown he is a good player at every level he has played at, J20, being one of the best D men in the CCHA (and NCAA overall in his last 2 years), a multiple time AHL Allstar, impressing in the NHL, and then being the D man with the most minutes for Sweden in a World Championship Gold Medal team.

He is really looking like he is going to be a 2nd pairing D man who can be a PP threat.
