But if he becomes a top pairing guy, I'll be happy as heck, but i'm certainly not counting on it (not that I really count on any prospect)
I don't think he has top end potential, people were talking Pronger after the draft which is just nuts. He could still be a #2 shut down, Marc Staal maybe, or something like type any way. He just has to learn what he can and can't do with the puck. He has a great work ethic and competes. He will at worst be a Smid type defender. I don't think thats bad.
