I don't think you understand exactly what I meant, I probably could have phrased it better.

Those were two different thoughts, not really linked together.

1- I'm saying that I think his floor is probably still as an NHL player because he's a smart player, mean, huge, a very good skater, and his offensive skills are improving when he actually got opportunities

and separately

2- That he might end up in a role similar to Coburn (defensive defenseman who is a great skater). I'm not saying Coburn is his floor, just that if he doesn't end up as a #1D, like we obviously hope he will, he could end up as a similar player to Coburn (aka not his floor, but somewhere in the middle of his floor and his ceiling).
