|Logged huge minutes for his team. Had all the physical tools every organization looks for in a top defenseman. Could play his best hockey against top lines and also filled in on the power play point. Excelled on the penalty kill.|
|Didn't make an impact with his physicality, despite the size to do so. Could be somewhat erratic at times with the puck on his stick. Didn't produce the offense expected of him when he was chosen first overall in the draft (1992).|
|Quality minute-munching defenseman.|
