he was a first round pick. hes 6'3 and skates beautifully. hes got the ability to be a very good offensive dman.

we saw what kind of shot he has- low and hard and we also saw a player who carrys the mail, plays the pp point and can move the puck out effortlessly.

defensively he suffers from the same thing staal and girardi suffer from. he gets boxed in occasionally. he makes dumb reads and scrambles around more than he should.

guess what? hes 23.

as i said before, hes got a chance to be very good and i see him, and i believe av and his staff see him, improving steadily.
