(Not to worry, kids...he recovered the next night with a multiple point performance against, um, Florida. The bodies in the torched van, however, have yet to record a similar performance.)
The proverbial fresh start could be exactly what the former second-round pick needs. His leadership skills have never been openly questioned (coming off of Captain Olli, I believe that's a fair statement), he possesses good size (6-2, 220), and is considered one of the finer offensive "puck-moving defensemen" that are all the rage in the league right now. Behind his own blueline he's a bit unremarkable (though a career +37...nice) but boasts a booming shot on the power play. A fine addition when considering the potential loss of J-Bo.
