That's if he completely flops though. Kid has great skating and size.

He IS a "safe pick."

He also has high upside to be an elite shut-down defenseman in the NHL.

Unfortunately, he doesn't have much offensive upside.
I think it is simply too soon to say that. He has a nice shot and an adequate pass, from what I have read. That, combined with his strong hockey iq and his plus skating suggests that there might be some offensive potential there.

I do like the snarl with his size.

I think you could make a fairly compelling case that his ceiling is higher than nurse or ristolainen--though he obviously also has a biggest potential to bust as well.
