He has 90 PIM last year which, unless they were lazy penalties, makes me think that though he isnt big, that he has a bit of a nasty streak to him. He was also 3rd on the team in +/- which isnt an exact science obviously but if you're a bad defender it's unlikely you'll be near the top of your team. Basically what I'm asking is, whats the catch? By the way people talk about him, he sounds like someone that would be the 2nd or 3rd defenseman taken, not potentially the 7th or 8th.
The dude is small. If he were 2 or 3 inches taller that would help.
