I like the pick because he is big, fast, physical, intelligent, and strong defensively. He should be able to move into the lineup in relatively short order. He was picked right around where he should have been picked and you are right about him going top 5 if he had Kovalev's hands......but that goes for every player in the first two rounds other than goaltenders and midgets.
But for a player with his size and speed, chipping it off the boards and winning a race to the puck is as effective as going inside out on a defenceman.
As for his hands, I just meant he doesn't look like Colby Armstrong out there, I believe he has the skillset to be used in the Top 6.
