    Buffalo fan here wondering what fans of the WHL could say about this guy? I hear he's a pretty mobile 2-way defensemen. What type of upside do you think he has, and who in the NHL (I know it's not exact but gives me a better view) could you compare his STYLE of play to? Thanks

    He looks to have the upside of a #2 or #3 defenseman...possibly playing along side Myers one day.

    The comparison that was made before he was drafted - and what I somewhat agree with - is that he plays like Wade Redden. It's been said before, but he doesn't have one amazing characteristic in his game, but rather does everything well.

    I doubt they go with a rightie-rightie pairing.

    His string of 23-games even or "+" on a middling team was pretty impressive.

    I'm pretty excited about Pysyk. If we don't package him in a deal, I'd be shocked if he wasn't playing in our top 4 in a few years.

    Very good two way defenseman. Very slick. Good offensive skills. Dennis Wideman (when he was lights out) would probably be a good comparison.

    I had him in my top 10. Criminally underrated. His decision making is phenomenal, and he's an effortless skater.
