Ya, the SEL is always a mystery when it comes to how offensive a Dman can be. Given the big Ice offensive Dmen basically just don't exists. Young Dmen esspecially are just told to play D and not worry about rushing. It is just such a differnt game. ANy way, I wouldn't doubt that he still has lots of offensive upside, really you just have to wait untill you see him play on smaller ice, see how he reads the plays and jumps up. I think he could still have a high end offensive game. I wouldn't be surprised if you see Schultz and Klefbom on the powerplay.

ps. why I really wanted to see him at the WJC this year, shame he missed it. I think he he would have been a beast.
