what do you guys think of him and his potential/skill, and what kind of a future awaits him?
I see him as being a #2-#3, providing solid defense and offense. I don't see him scoring a huge amount of points, but I think 35 a year is reasonable, probably assist-heavy. He plays a little chippier than I though he would, but he's not an overt physical presence.
The players I've heard him compared to are Glen Wesley or Calle Johansson.
