He's a steady, reliable d-man that had a very tough year because of injuries but was fantastic in the playoffs when he was healthy and that is why he jumped up on a lot of people's lists. He has been compared to a poor man's Wade Redden.
To me, KW is one of the safest picks amongst D-men.
Poor man's Wade Redden is not a bad comparison -
he's big(though lanky at this point), mobile, and has
a few nice skills when making the switch to offense.
The kind of D-man that makes you wonder how good he'll be once
he matures, grows into an NHL'ers frame.
Wharton could be a guy that gets overlooked due to injuries. A poor man's Wade Redden is a decent comparison, but I feel Wharton will be more of a factor physically, but is far less skilled with the puck than Redden is.
