He's also very soft, has no shot, so yeah he's alright and pretty solid in the role he's been given but lets not go crazy here. Maybe he'll turn into a less offensive version of Hamhuis, that's what I'm hoping but he'll have to start playing against MUCH better players instead of taking on the 3/4 lines.
He played against top competition when paired with Hamhuis and performed fine

but agreed, needs to bulk up and improve on his offensive abrasiveness
