|Had tremendous size and strength for the blueline position. Oozed offensive instincts and displayed great skating ability for a 6-3, 210-pound defenseman. Was an asset on the point with the man advantage.|
|Lacked consistency in all areas of the game. Didn't do nearly a good-enough job of keeping opponents honest with his big frame, and generally lacked grit. Was somewhat fragile and prone to getting injured.|
|Inconsistent but talented big-minute defenseman, when healthy.|
