When he got hurt he was still learning the game, in the couple years he was a Leaf he was really getting better in his own end. Top notch offensive ability for sure, but was also establishing a physical game as well. He was a product of 18-19 year old defenders being rushed. I don't think he was a Norris type guy but certainly a potential number 1, Berrard, McCabe and Kabs were 3 really nice young defenders
