He best skill is his hockey sense. He thinks the game at a level well beyond his years, and he does not make many mistakes on the ice. He is an aware, effective defenseman who can close gaps with his body or with his stick. With the puck, he shows calmness, but he can process the game quickly when the situation calls for it.

This is the main reason why I think Risto is the BPA if he is available. This is the most important piece to being a high end defender and its something that can't be taught. I don't want the biggest dman and hope he somehow acquires hockey sense and puts it all together. I want someone who already has all the tools and already is proving himself at a much higher level.
