Like I said, has the physique and the skating ability to control the pace in his own zone and I think he will be a tremendous player. But I'd also lower my expectations of him for next year...
May I remind you that Chara struggled a bit also in his first few years. To the point where Ottawa stupidly let him go.
I'm not comparing Tiny to Chara, but pointing out that Big D with attitude is a very tough position in the NHL, and it takes some time.
I love this guy, and I think he's going to be a beast.
