    What is this guy upside? Top 4, top 6? ..... I mean, is there any chance he becomes a Scott Stevens or more a 5th d-man?

    OK, I'll change the question.... what is his upside? I know he is hitting a lot, but how looks his positionning, speed, etc..... ?

    A Solid Top 4 guy, not an elite defenceman, but someone a lot of people wouldn't mind having on their team. Keith Carney type.

    Good analogy. Defensively responsible, decent speed and puck-handling skills, big open-ice hitter but doesn't take himself out of the play (often) and punishes forwards in the slot.

    Think Jason Smith with a little less pain threshold (Smith's pain threshold is otherworldly - this is a guy who pulled out two in-grown toenails with a coathanger in his hotel room just before a game) but a touch more skill and speed.

    Excellent d-man to have. Atlanta will have a killer team soon imo.
