Scouting Report
Assets: Can still be an asset on the power play. Has size, hockey sense and a wicked point shot. Makes crisp, precise passes to get out of the defensive zone. Can still put up good numbers.
Flaws: Doesn't use the body nearly enough, and can be guilty of lazy play on occasion. Because he sees a lot of ice time, and is getting on in years, he has become more of an injury risk with time.
Career Potential: Savvy veteran offensive defenseman in decline.
